The Spokesperson of Iran’s Foreign Ministry, Bahram Ghasemi, described on Friday Emirati FM’s claims of Yemenis attacking to Mecca as abuse of religious sanctities for petty political motives.
“The claim that Yemenis have attacked the holy city of Mecca is fundamentally ridiculous,” Ghasemi said, in response to a tweet by Emirati Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nayhan.
“The Iranian regime supports a terrorist group that launched its rockets on Mecca,” bin Zayed tweeted.
“We advise Saudi and Emirati officials to abandon abusing the holy religious locations for their petty political motives,” asserted the Iranian diplomat.
“Do not reach for hypocritical, divisive, and dangerous propaganda to make up for your defeats and failures,” he added.
Ghasemi maintained that “Yemenis are more faithful than Wahhabis and Sultanas who are relying on the US and the Zionist regime, instead of the Islamic nations, to preserve their kingdom and throne.”
“Yemenis are more respectful to the Two Holy Mosques than violators and children-murderers,” the Iranian official said in reference to the Saudi-led Arab coalition that is striking Yemen since more than 18 months.
