Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Ahmed Qassem, the leader of the country’s main opposition party Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, has described the war of aggression against Yemen as “a dirty war by virtue of religion and human conscience.”
“Yemen is a Muslim country, and its people are among the longest-standing Muslim nations, and among the most staunch ones in their defence of Islam, and in their pride and redemption for its sake,” Isa Ahmed Qassem said in a statement.
“It can be said that it is a dirty war, according to religion and human conscience, as it imposes a siege on food and medicine to starve the vulnerable, the safe, the children and the elderly.”
He continued: “Yemen is really being oppressed, really being attacked, part of it is being occupied, rained down upon day and night by deadly airstrikes and continuous aerial incursions which spare no elderly, no children, no schools, no hospitals, no animals, no trees, no plants, no infrastructure,” the Ayatollah continued.
“It is a comprehensive war of aggression that targets all aspects of life against a Muslim country, done by the hands of neighbouring Islamic countries in fulfillment of the arrogant desires and wishes of the US and based on its practical support,” he added.
