A top Iranian rights official said the oppressed people of Yemen are still deprived of receiving the most basic humanitarian aid due to the colonial nature and human rights violations of Saudi Arabia and the members of the Riyadh-led coalition and the United States.
Making the remarks in an address to reporters on Sunday, Kazem Gharibabadi, the Iranian Judiciary chief’s deputy for international affairs and secretary of the country’s High Council for Human Rights, added that Palestinians have for decades been under the biggest threats from the Zionist regime, IRNA reported.
Palestinian women and children are killed and the country’s displaced people have no vision of when they would be able to return to their homeland, he said, noting that Israel has extended the scope of its invasions to the neighboring states.
Blaming the United States for the present unfavorable humanitarian situation in the world and region, Gharibabadi said Washington is by no means qualified to speak of human rights.
The U.S. government must, firstly, be held accountable for the lives it has taken in the oppressed nations through spreading terrorism, imposing sanctions, aggression and occupation.
Saudi Arabia launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in collaboration with its Arab allies, with arms and logistics support from the US and other Western states.
