Iran sternly warned US against attacks on Yemen: FM

TEHRAN, Jan. 23 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says Iran has warned the US that its decision to launch joint attacks with the UK against Yemen is a strategic mistake.

He made the comment in response to a question by IRNA’s correspondent to New York on Monday local time after the end of his bilateral meetings on the first day of his trip to New York.

“We sent a serious message and warning to the Americans,” Amirabdollahian said.

“The action that the United States and the United Kingdom took jointly and attacked areas in Yemen is a threat to peace and security in the region and is an intensification of the scope of war,” he added.

Yemenis have been launching attacks on Israeli-linked ships since the Zionist regime launched a brutal war on Gaza in early October.

The attacks expanded earlier this month to cover ships owned by the US and Britain after the two countries launched attacks on Yemeni soil in what they said was an attempt to protect shipping in the Red Sea and surrounding waterways.

More than 25,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed by the Zionist regime’s bombardment of Gaza since the beginning of the war.
