Saudis to Incur God's Wrath for Crimes in Yemen: Iran Leader

Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned that the Al Saud regime will definitely incur God's wrath over the crimes it is committing against the innocent people of Yemen.

"The crime the Al Saud is committing to occupy Yemen will finally backfire," the Leader said in a Wednesday meeting with the families of Iranian martyrs in Tehran.

"It's been four years that they [Saudis] are committing crimes in Yemen. They thought they would win the battle in a few days or weeks, but the more they move forward, the heavier will become their defeat and the blow dealt on them," he added.

The Leader said the Custodians of the Two Holy Mosques must take a hard line on infidels, but the Saudi rulers have taken their hard line on Yemen and Bahrain.

"This will provoke God's wrath," the Leader warned.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a devastating war, code-named Operation Decisive Storm, against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and crush the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The Western-backed offensive initially consisted of a bombing campaign, but was later coupled with a naval blockade and the deployment of ground forces to Yemen.

The imposed war has so far failed to achieve its goals, thanks to stiff resistance from Yemeni troops and allied Houthi fighters, but it has killed thousands of innocent people and led to a deadly famine and cholera outbreak.
