saudi-airstrikes on Yemen

Excerpts by  From: Commander: Saudi Arabia Using Israeli-Made Weapons in Aggression against Yemen ~ (Fars News Agency, 2 April 2015)

Senior Yemeni officials disclosed that the Riyadh government has used Israeli-made weapons in its airstrikes on Yemen.

“The Saudis are using Israeli weapons in their raids on Yemen,” Yemeni Army Commander Taher Rasoul Zadami told FNA [i.e. Fars News Agency] on Thursday.

He pointed to the Saudi supports for Al-Qaeda terrorists in Yemen, and said, “I call on the Yemeni people to confront these terrorist acts through resistance and maintaining their unity.

Zadami underlined that Saudi Arabia and its allies are trying to stir a tribal and religious war in the region, and said, “Anyone who under such situation stands up against the Yemeni nation should be tried at an international criminal court.”
