Saudi’s attack on Yemen launched with West green light: Iranian Top Commander
Iranian Armed Forces’ Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi on Saturday said that Saudi Arabia’s aggression on Yemen was approved by Western governments as they are keeping silent on the killing of innocent people in the Arab country.
According to Press TV, he said: “The inaction of the West and the human rights organizations on the massacre of the women and children in Yemen and the destruction of the country’s infrastructure has strengthened the suspicion that Al Saud’s aggression was carried out with their green light.”
The commander further said the attack on Yemen was an attempt by Saudi rulers to divert attention from the conflicts and disputes inside the kingdom.
Firouzabadi said: “The [Saudis] have, in a maniacal move, started attacks against the innocent nation of Yemen to cover up their internal disputes and incapability,” adding that the attack on the Arabian Peninsula state is the continuation of moves by Saudi extremists in Syria, Iraq and North Africa.
The high-ranking commander also criticized the Muslim countries that have kept silent on the crimes committed by Saudi Arabia in Yemen.
More than 550 people have been killed and an estimated 100,000 people have been displaced across Yemen since Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression on March 26.
