(Iraq Now News)-

Saudi Arabia‘s Ambassador to the UN Abdallah al-Mouallimi presented an urgent letter to the UN Security Council which said that the Arab coalition considers the operation which targeted Saada governorate last Thursday as a legitimate military action according to the rules of humanitarian law, Arabiya News reported. 

The operation was targeted at Houthi militia leaders responsible for recruiting children and putting them in battle fields.

It was aimed at a senior weapons trainer and another trainer of sniper units.

Al-Mouallimi confirmed that the Arab coalition referred the incident to the Arab Coalition’s Joint Incident Assessment Team (JIAT). 

The Saudi letter also criticized the UN Security Council’s inactions toward the Houthi militias’ violations of UN Resolutions, especially Resolutions 2216 and 2231, permitting Iran to arm the Houthis who benefited from a growing stockpile of ballistic missiles, drones and naval mines, threatening regional stability and maritime navigation in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandeb strait.

Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said on Friday that one of the leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Brigadier General Nasser Shabani, admitted with all brazenness that the Iranian regime ordered its followers - the Houthis - to hit Saudi tankers in the Red Sea.

“There should be no more doubt about the Iranian regime’s menacing role in Yemen and disregard for human suffering and the environment,” Prince Khalid tweeted.
