Supreme Political Council holds Saudi-led aggression coalition full responsibility for Sanaa funeral air attacks
SANAA, Oct. 16 (Saba) – The Supreme Political Council on Sunday held the military coalition led by Saudi Arabia full responsibility on Oct. 8 air attacks for the air attacks on a funeral of Al Al-Ruwaishan in the capital Sanaa that left over 700 civilian dead and injured.
In a statement received by Saba, the political council recognized the Saudi-led coalition’s statement that was attributed to the so-called " joint investigation team", which was issued on Saturday, Oct. 15, as an attempt to escape from the responsibility and try to clear the the aggression coalition’s responsibility that are filled with crimes and massacres against the Yemeni civilians.
"The Saudi-led aggression coalition has already committed countless massacres that are war crimes in the Yemeni areas of Amran, Bani Dhabyan, Razih, Sanaban, Mokha, al-Honood quarter, Msataba and Khalakat Nehm , as well as many others, including targeting wedding parties, homes gathering in markets and roads that caused hundreds of civilian deaths," read the statement.
In the statement, the political council also said that the Saudi regime and its mercenary allies have violated all international norms and humanitarian laws that criminalize the targeting of civilians after Saudis bought the relating international institutions.
"The Saudi regime today underestimates the blood of Yemenis, the victims of the Sanaa funeral gathering, the Yemeni people and the international community when it blamed the attacking of Sanaa funeral to a body within the presidency of the Yemeni general staff, which is affiliated with the Saudi-led aggression coalition," said the political council.
"While we recognize that the aggression coalition’s statement was an obvious admission about committing this heinous crime against the civilian mourners, the exchange of accusations between the Saudi aggression and its mercenaries confirmed the failure of their aggression against Yemen," the council said.
The political council also warned that the aggression coalition’s statement comes in the context of circumventing the international calls by the United Nations and the Human Rights Council, as well as the Yemeni people and the families of the victims for forming an international and independent committee to investigate the crimes committed by the Saudi aggression against the Yemeni people.
"This demand has been reiterated by the Supreme Political Council," the political council’s statement added.
