(AhlulBayt News Agency) - A senior Iranian scholar said the crimes committed by Saudi Arabia against the Yemeni people are worse than those committed by the Pharaoh.
Speaking Sunday at a Tafsir (Quran interpretation) course at Azam Mosque in Qom, Grand Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi Amoli said the Riyadh regime is killing innocent civilians, including women and children, in the Arabian Peninsula country.
He also regretted the silence of world bodies, including the United Nations, over the Saudis’ massacre of people in Yemen.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the Saudi-led coalition for the past three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
