Iranian students rally outside UN office in Tehran to slam Saudi-led aggression against Yemen
Hundreds of Iranian students have rallied outside the United Nations office in Tehran to protest against Saudi aggression of Yemen, after the Arab kingdom carried out dozens of brutal airstrikes against the war-torn country in past days.
The protesters took to the streets on Thursday, chanting slogans against Riyadh and its allies for their brutal acts against Yemeni people.
The protesters, which included students from the University of Tehran and Yemeni students living in Iran, condemned the international community’s silence on the Saudi aggression.
The demonstrators held photos of injured or martyred Yemeni children and chanted slogans such as “Death to America”, “Death to Al Saud”, and “Death to Israel” to express their disgust with the Saudi atrocities in Yemen.
The development comes on the heels of more than 50 airstrikes by Saudi warplanes against various districts in war-torn Yemen in just 24 hours, which killed more than 90 civilians.
The overnight attack created horrific scenes, with bombed-out buildings littered with bodies and hospitals overwhelmed. Yemeni officials have called for an international investigation into the airstrikes.
