Iranian Protesters Describe Riyadh as Capital of Terrorism
Protesters in Tehran who poured to the streets to condemn the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen after the Friday prayers ceremony described Riyadh as the capital of terrorism in their final statement.
“The hero people (of Yemen) see Riyadh as the capital nurturing radicalism and terrorism,” the protestors said in their final statement.
They said that the Al Saud aggression against Yemen is an effort by the US and its allies to help Israel continue its existence in the region.
“The revolutionary people of Iran consider the brutal killing of people and the Saudi regime’s efforts to destroy the infrastructures of the Muslim country of Yemen a joint plot by the US and the sworn enemies of the Muslims, specially the intelligence and military officials of the Zionist regime; we demand the international bodies, particularly the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation and the Muslim world’s legal organizations, to issue an indictment to prepare the grounds for the trial of the criminal Saudi leaders,” parts of the statement read.
The protesters also condemned the UN’s negligence towards the Saudi regime’s crimes and issuance of UN Security Council Resolution 2216 that shows the council’s partiality with the aggressor and massacre of the Yemeni women, children and the elderly.
People in Iran poured to the streets after the Friday prayers ceremonies across the country to condemn the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen.
The demonstrators carrying placards chanted slogans against the Saudi regime and its allies and condemned Riyadh’s continued massacre of the Yemeni people.
The protestors also chanted slogans against the US for supporting the Riyadh government in its aggression against Yemen.
On Thursday, Iranian students gathered in front of the UN office in Tehran to condemn the killing of Yemeni women, children and students and urge the world body’s serious reaction.
Hundreds of female and male students chanted slogans, including “Death to Al Saud”, “Death to the US” and “I am a Yemeni”.
They also carried placards and banners to voice support for the innocent Yemeni children.
The Iranian students called on the UN and other international bodies to show reaction to the cruel massacre of the defenseless Yemeni people.
Iranians have repeatedly taken to the streets to show their condemnation of the Saudi invasion of Yemen in the last 44 days, i.e. since a Saudi-led coalition of 10 countries started a massive aerial campaign against the impoverished Arab nation on March 26.
Also in mid April, Iranian protestors staged mass rallies across the country to condemn the Saudi airstrikes against the innocent people in Yemen.
Chanting slogans against the Al Saud regime, the demonstrators in the Iranian capital, Tehran, and many other cities denounced the ongoing Saudi crimes in Yemen.
The protesters also condemned Washington’s support for Saudi Arabia’s aggression against the Muslim country. They also said Riyadh would be defeated in the war.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 44 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 3,572 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
On April 21, Saudi Arabia declared end to Yemen airstrikes after weeks of bombings, but airstrikes are still underway.
