Iran condemns Sana’a bomb blasts

TEHRAN, Sep. 04 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham condemned two bomb blasts that targeted a Shia mosque in the Yemeni capital Sana’a, killing at least 28 people on Wednesday.

Yemen’s Health Ministry said that scores of people also sustained injuries after the blasts targeted the al-Moayed Mosque in the Yemeni capital.

Afkham said the Yemeni people are the target of inhumane attacks by both Saudi Arabia and terrorist groups.

“Today, no region in Yemen has remained immune from war and vindictive attacks and an all-out pressure has been placed on the country's Muslim people to force them to surrender to the aggressors,” stated Afkham.

She also expressed regret over the killing of two aid workers registered with the International Committee of the Red Cross who were shot dead by gunmen in northern Yemen.

Afkham also called on the international community to play an effective role in addressing the humanitarian crisis in the impoverished Arab country, and urged an end to the relentless aggression against Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26. Nearly 4,500 people have been killed in the Yemeni conflict, the World Health Organization said on August 11. Local Yemeni sources, however, say the fatality figure is much higher.
