Senior Iranian cleric calls for holding Saudi accountable for Yemen war crimes

Tehran, A senior Iranian official urged international organizations to hold Saudi Arabia responsible for its war crimes in Yemen.

The war in Yemen should be ended and international organizations need to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for its war crimes there, said Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, Secretary of Iran's Guardian Council, a legislative body that oversees Iran's lawmaking process.

Earlier this week, a number of people were killed in a Saudiled bombing in northern Yemen.

Air raids by coalition forces at a busy market in the northern Saada province killed civilians, including two children.

The Saudiled coalition has been battling the Houthis since 2015 in a war that has killed tens of thousands of people, brought millions to the brink of famine, and spawned the world's most devastating humanitarian crisis.
