Iran condemns continued Saudi crimes in Yemen, calls for Int'l community help
IRAN  - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi strongly condemned the non-stop Saudi-led air raids against the innocent people of Yemen, and called on the international community to do its best to prevent the Riyadh government's crimes against humanity in the neighboring country.

"The persistence of the daily crimes of intruders and the silence of the international community has deteriorated the situation of the Yemeni people," Qassemi said on Friday.

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman underlined that the Saudi Arabia and its allies' atrocities in Yemen indicates their persistence in committing genocide and horrible crimes in Yemen.

"Blasting, killing and taking revenge from the innocent people and attacking civilian targets such as hospitals, houses and public places to compensate for Saudi Arabia and its allies' prolonged failures in Yemen is nothing but a war crime, and the silence of the international community has worsened the situation of civilians in the war-torn Yemen," Qassemi added.

The Iranian foreign minister, meantime, condemned the Saudi-led coalition's air strikes on a fish market and the entrance to a nearby hospital in Yemeni port city of Hudaydah on Thursday which claimed the lives of at least 20 innocent people and wounding dozens more.

The Saudi-led coalition carried out an airstrike on a hospital in the Yemeni Red Sea port of Hudaydah, killing 55 people and injuring 124 more.

According to Al Masira, over 20 bodies of victims were transported to a military hospital.

A spokesperson for the Yemeni popular forces of Ansarullah's Healthcare Ministry said that the airstrike targeted ambulance cars at the entrance of the hospital.

"The airstrikes were carried out on ambulance cars at the entrance to the Al Thawra hospital. All the victims were civilians," the spokesperson told the Al Jazeera.

The Al Thawra hospital reportedly called on local residents to help those injured by donating blood.
