The Iranian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned on Tuesday what it called as the "war crime" of the Saudi-led Arab coalition" on a popular market in the northern province of Saada, killing and wounding dozens of civilians.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi expressed his condemnation of such deadly and inhumane acts, saying that "the aggressive forces in Yemen have only achieved the destruction of this country."
" killing civilians, women and children, in the marketplace, the Saudi-led coalition wants to cover up their failure in Yemen.", Mousavi added.
He added: "America and the European countries that sell arms to the aggressors on Yemen are partners in these crimes and they have to hold the responsibilities of their actions".
Yemen has been devastated by a five-year armed conflict by the government backed by the coalition and the Iran-backed Houthis.
More than 11.000 civilians have been killed and tens of thousands of others injured in the war. Millions have been displaced and tens of thousands have fled outside the country.
The coalition has been responsible for the vast majority of civilian casualties, according to the UN and international human rights organizations.
The conflict has caused what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
More than 24 million people, more than 80% of the country's population, are in need some form of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 8.4 million people who don't know where their next meal will come from, according to the UN.
