SANAA, An official at the Foreign Ministry in Sana strongly condemned the continuation of the US-backed Saudi-led aggression coalition’s crimes against civilians, houses and public utilities, the most recent of which was targeting of a citizen’s house in Washha district of Hajjah province, which killed a number of women and children.
The official pointed out in a statement that this crime comes shortly after the date of the decision of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to remove the name of the aggression coalition from the blacklist of violators of children’s rights, which confirms that this decision is not correct and needed to be reviewed.
He called on the international community, topped by the Security Council, the states sponsoring the settlement in Yemen, and the Human Rights Council to abandon the policy of double standards in dealing with the human rights file in Yemen, condemn this crime, press Saudi Arabia to stop its crimes, and form an independent international committee to investigate it and the rest of crimes committed since March 26, 2015.
The official emphasized that the international silence applied to the crimes committed in Yemen, the prevalence of interests over humanitarian principles and the provision of weapons to Saudi Arabia gives the coalition the green light to continue in its aggression against Yemen disregarding all international treaties, customs and laws.
The official noted that while the National Salvation Government emphasizes its natural and legitimate right to self-defense, it reaffirms its commitment to achieving a just and honorable peace that ends the aggression and blockade and achieves security and stability for Yemen and the region in general.
