Saudi Arabia is using everything at its disposal to turn the war on Yemen into a “Sunni-Shia conflict” by accusing Iran of supplying weapons to Yemenis, but the plot will fail, says a journalist.
The Yemeni people have the right to get weapons to defend themselves against the Saudi-led aggression. Accusing other countries is part of “Saudi tactics perhaps to say that the conflict is with Iran and not with Yemen,” Omar Nashabe told Press TV on Tuesday.
The journalist, who is working with al-Akhbar newspaper, also criticized the international community for showing an unfair reaction to a rocket attack on Saudi Arabia’s King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh early on Sunday.
“The world is biased. The world has been shutting down on the massacre that has been going on in Yemen for so many years and now Yemen is reacting by defending itself, by reacting to this aggression, there seems to be an international condemnation.”
