Hezbollah lashed out at Saudi crimes in Yemen, slamming as ‘suspicious’ the international silence in this regards.
In a statement released by its Media Relations Office late Thursday, Hezbollah said described as war crimes the attacks carried out by the Saudi-UAE alliance which has been for more than 3 years waging a brutal aggression on Yemen.
“Even before the blood of school students dries up, the US-Saudi aggression has committed a new massacre in Yemen’s Hodeidah, killing dozens of children and women… amid suspicious silence by the international community which only counts the number of victims.”
Hezbollah was referring to an earlier massacre committed by the Saudi-led aggression on Saada’s Dahian. The strike, which took place on August 9 targeted a school bus in a market, killing 51 civilians including 40 children, and injuring dozens others.
“Attacks by US-Saudi alliance: killing children and women as well as destroying schools, hospitals, markets and heritage sites in Yemen are all war crimes in every sense of the word,” the statement said.
The Lebanese resistance group denounced the continuous crimes against Yemeni people, calling on the international community to “stand against this savage aggression in order not to be complicit in these crimes.”
Hezbollah meanwhile in his statement saluted the Yemeni leadership and people, stressing that the “blood of innocents will triumph over the swords of the headmen.”
