Western strikes on Yemen have no excuse: Russian envoy

TEHRAN, May 13 (MNA) – The Western coalition’s strikes on Yemen violate the UN Charter, can have no excuse, and only worsen the escalation of tensions in the Red Sea, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya has said.

"The already difficult situation has become even more complicated due to the Western coalition's unjustified strikes on the territory of sovereign Yemen, undertaken in violation of the UN Charter," he said at a meeting of the UN Security Council.

Nebenzya also noted the failure of attempts "to justify this aggression by Security Council Resolution 2722 or by references to the right to self-defense under Article 51 of the UN Charter."

"The failed experience of the US-led coalition clearly proves that the use of force against Yemen will not put the situation in the Red Sea on the right track," he stated, TASS reported.

Yemenis have declared their open support for Palestine’s struggle against the Israeli occupation since the regime launched a devastating war on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian Resistance movements carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.

Yemeni Armed Forces have said that they won’t stop their attacks until unrelenting Israeli ground and aerial offensives in Gaza, which have killed at least 27,948 people and wounded another 67,459 individuals, come to an end.

The United States and Britain in December announced a military coalition to target Yemen in support of Israel.
