Iran Asks for Trial of S. Arabia, UAE, US, Britain for Crimes in Yemen
Rasa - Secretary of Iran's Human Rights Council Mohammad Javad Larijani blasted Riyadh, UAE, the US and Britain for their extensive human rights violations in Yemen, stressing the need for relevant international bodies to put them on trial.

RNA - "The crimes committed by Saudi Arabia, UAE, the US and Britain in Yemen and other parts of the world are clear instances of human rights violation and they should be tried at international tribunals," Larijani said on Monday.

 

He also expressed displeasure with Saudi Arabia's membership in the UN Human Rights Council, calling for the country's expulsion for its extensive human rights violations.

 

Meantime, Larijani welcomed US President Donald Trump's decision to cancel its membership in the UN Human Rights Council.

 

In relevant remarks in February, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi slammed the US, Britain and France for escalating war in Yemen through their arms shipments and supports for the Saudi-led coalition, saying the three UN Security Council member states are responsible for the pains, sufferings and massacre of women and children in Yemen.

 

Qassemi blasted the US and Britain for their unconstructive role in the UN Security Council in the past three years and their attempts to legitimize the aggressors in the Yemen war, stressing the need for ending the Saudi-led aggression against the poor Arab country.

 

"All those who play a destructive role by selling modern weapons, enlarging the arsenals of aggressive countries and intensifying the crisis and instability in the region have the responsibility to defend and protect the defenseless Yemeni women and children who are facing a humanitarian crisis that has been brought about by devastating war and sanctions imposed on the country," he underlined.

 

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 17,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

 

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

 

According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia's deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.

 

Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with more than 22 million people in need and is seeing a spike in needs, fuelled by ongoing conflict, a collapsing economy and diminished social services and livelihoods.

 

According to Fars News Agancy, the United Nations aid chief has recently expressed concern over the decline of food imports to Yemen amid restrictions put in place by the Saudi Arabia, warning that a further 10 million Yemenis could face starvation by year-end.

 

Humanitarian agencies have also warned that halting operations at the crucial Hudaydah port would have an enormous impact on people all across Yemen, urging the warring parties to spare innocent lives in their battle for the Red Sea city.
