The commander of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards accused Saudi Arabia on Monday of following in Israel's footsteps in the region by carrying out air strikes in Yemen, the official IRNA news agency reported.
A Saudi-led alliance began bombing Iranian-allied Houthi in Yemen last month, seeing a threat from their advances across the Arabian Peninsula state. Riyadh also wants to restore Yemen's president, forced into exile by the Houthis.
"Saudi Arabia is following in the Zionist (Israel) regime's footsteps in the Islamic world," Jafari was quoted as saying by IRNA. Jafari called on Iran's leaders to face the Saudis for their ongoing campaign in Yemen. “Now that the attacks have been launched, no considerations should be shown.”Last Mod: 27 Nisan 2015, 14:18
