Iran Vows Response To Saudi Interception Of Aid Plane In Yemen

National Yemen

First Iranian Plane Arrives In Sana’a

An Iranian deputy foreign minister said that Tehran will respond against Riyadh after Saudi fighter jets blocked Iranian planes, including a consignment of humanitarian aid, from landing in Yemen.

“Saudi Arabia’s behavior in besieging Yemen and preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid will not remain unanswered,” Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Sunday.

A few days earlier, Saudi warplanes refused an Iranian plane containing humanitarian goods landing in Yemen and forced it to return to Tehran.

“We are considering all options for helping the Yemeni people, the immediate delivery of humanitarian assistance and transfer of the injured (Yemenis),” Amir Abdollahian added.

Deploring the Saudi-led offensive on Yemen, the Iranian diplomat warned that Riyadh’s continued military action against Yemenis will result in nothing but insecurity in Saudi Arabia and the region.


  • One word for Iran: Who supports the murderer Assad in Syria, killing his own people?! We will never allow Iranian supported minority do the same here

  • What I see is in fact Saudis are murdering Yemenis. As far as I know, Al Qaeda, and ISIS both created and backed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar as well as Emirates slaughtered people in Syria and Iraq and not a single Arab country helped Iraq and Syria and Yemen but IRAN to fight those terrorist. Even US is helping Iran to fight ISIS in Iraq. Now it's time for idiots like you to rethink who's the murderer, Saudi Arabia with a long record of funding terrorism or Iran.
