The Islamic Republic of Iran on Monday condemned the airstrikes of Saudi-led coalition’s warplanes against Yemeni people in Talan village of Kosher district in Yemen's northwestern province of Hajjah, which led to the killing and wounding dozens, mostly women and children.

Iranian Foreign ministry Spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi said: "The defenders who are not only silent at the daily killings of women and children in Yemen, but are also complicit in these crimes by selling weapons to the aggressors."

four-years conflict which broke out after the Houthi Group (Ansar Allah) ousted the internationally recognised government in late 2014.

The Houthi group (Ansar Allah) media reported on Sunday that Saudi-led Arab coalition warplanes launched airstrikes on three families in  Talan village of Kosher district in Yemen's northwestern province of Hajjah, killing, injuring 42 people, including 14 children and 9 women.

According to Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), the official Ghasemi voiced regret at the silence and passivity of human rights organizations and circles in the face of inhumane war crimes committed by the aggressors in Yemen, saying “the voice of the innocent women and children of Yemen who, after years of suffering from the famine and the impact of the human catastrophe in their country, are being slaughtered every day in the most brutal manner possible by weapons sold and gifted to the aggressors by some Western countries, will not be heard as long as they are alive. But their death will be a permanent stamp on the shameful document of false defenders of human rights.”

Ministry of Public Health in the "resuce" Government said that Saudi-led Arab coalition's warplanes launched more than 30 airstrikes, destroying  al-Hadi, al-Ahdab, Zalil houses and more than 10 other houses in violation of all humanitarian and international laws and in full view of the wohle world. 

In a statement published by Houthi-run Yemen's "Saba" news agency, the warplanes also targeted one of the ambulances in the ​​Sodin area of Kosher district as it was on the way to ambulance the wounded.

Houthis have started a widespread offensive since last January on Hajoor tribal areas, amid strong resistance by tribesmen who had rejected rebel control, with Saudi-led coalition warplanes backing the tribes by periodic strikes on Houthi reinforcements and equipment.

Legitimate government forces control parts of Midi and Haradh districts, while other territories of the 31-district governorate of Hajjah are under Houthi-control.

Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally recognized government late in 2014, leaving tens of thousands killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and 3 million displaced.

The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi, triggering the world's worst humanitarian crisis, according to the UN, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 8.4 million people unsure how to get next meal, and some 2 million children suffering severe shortage of nutrition.
