UN blacklists Saudi-led alliance for killing Yemeni childern

Tehran, The United Nations in a report on Tuesday added a Saudi-led military coalition to a blacklist of child rights violators for causing the deaths and injuries of hundreds of children in war-torn Yemen.

According to Al-Jazeera news network, UN report highlighted death and injury of 1,300 Yemeni children, most of whom were victims of air strikes.

The report said that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the death of 368 children in Yemen.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by a coalition led by Riyadh for more than two years, but Saudis have not achieved any of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly, indiscriminate airstrikes on civilians in an attempt to restore to power fugitive president, Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly Saudi aggression.
