TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry strongly condemned a Saudi-led aerial attack on a residential area in Yemen’s Hudaydah province that killed scores of civilians, saying the continued policy of certain countries to sell arms to Saudi Arabia has encouraged the regime to keep pounding Yemen.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Thursday expressed condolences to the families of victims of the deadly attack on Souq al-Hanoud area in the al-Hawak district of Yemen’s Hudaydah province. The strike, which occurred late on Wednesday, killed some 50 civilians and injured scores of others.

The spokesman noted that the international community’s indifference to the Saudi conduct and the continued arms sale to the Riyadh regime have encouraged the kingdom to intensify attacks on Yemen’s defenseless people and keep its acts of aggression.

Qassemi further underlined that the muted response to the killing of Yemeni civilians and sale of destructive weapons to Saudis would make certain Western countries more disgusting in the eyes of the public and represent them as accomplice to the crimes committed by the Saudi “child-murderer” regime.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been launching airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

More than 10,000 Yemenis, including many women and children, have died in the Saudi-led aggression so far.

Not so easy : F-15 has the world record of altitude for a jet-fighter (+30km! Although this one was prepared to break the record) and is the 2nd faster one after Mig-25/31… You need serious missiles to hope to get them. The country being under blockade, including a maritime one, it may not be easy to smuggle some S-300 complex, then, you need others systems to protect the S-300 from anti-radiation missiles like the AGM-88 Harm or some cruise-missiles (and last trend is stealth cruise-missiles). Building an efficient air-defence system is not so easy and nothing is 100% reliable :… Read more »
