SHAFAQNA – Yemen’s armed forces and popular committees spokesman accused the Saudi Arabia of committing “war crimes” during its aggression on Yemen. In the meantime, the Prime minister who was during the mandate of the fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, was sworn in as a Vice President in Riyadh. In a press conference on Monday, army spokesman, Colonel Sharaf Luqman, said that civilians and Yemeni infrastructure have been the target of the Saudi aggression against Yemen. A lot of governmental buildings, schools, shops, gas stations, markets, stadiums and mosques have been destroyed in the Saudi attacks, the spokesman added, describing the Saudi brutalities in Yemen as “war crimes”.
“Saudi Arabia is the international supporter of terrorism,” he said according to Press TV, noting that Riyadh is “targeting everything” in Yemen. “Saudi Arabia is hiring foreign armies and its troops cannot dare to fight Yemenis,” the army spokesman added. Meanwhile on Monday, Prime Minister Khaled Bahah, who was during the mandate of Hadi, was sworn in as vice president in Riyadh. He was sworn in front of Hadi. The Gulf Cooperation Council welcomed Bahah’s appointment as an important step towards helping Hadi’s efforts to “restore security and stability in Yemen.”
The bloc which groups Saudi Arabia with Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates pledged to “continue to support all efforts” to push for a political solution in Yemen, as they said. Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition whose warplanes are carrying out airstrikes on several areas across the country. Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
