Tehran calls attack on Yemen fish market ‘war crime’

August 3, 2018 - 20:39

TEHRAN – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Friday denounced as a “war crime” the new Saudi-led air strikes on a fish market in Yemen’s western port city of Hudaydah, which killed about 40 people and injured many more.

In a statement, Qassemi described the Thursday attacks on civilians as “the constant repetition of genocide and heinous crimes in Yemen committed by Saudi Arabia and its allies,” Tasnim reported.

By shedding the blood of the Yemeni people and attacking civilian targets such as hospitals, residential houses and public places, Saudi Arabia is making up for its defeats and failures in the battlefields, the spokesman said.
