Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says atrocities by Saudi Arabia and Israel have worked to even alienate their own allies.
“As evidence from behind the scenes indicates, a sense of being fed up with and in fact disgusted at the policies of spreading terror and extremism by the Saudi regime has emerged in the entire world,” Foreign Minister Zarif said in remarks published by IRNA on Tuesday.
“Yet, political, economic, and military concerns and interests have caused some disaffected countries to stay silent or comment less [on the matter],” he added.
“Saudi atrocities in Yemen and Israeli atrocities in the region have even caused their friends to complain,” he said.
Saudi Arabia has been conducting military strikes against Yemen since March 2015. The war has killed over 10,000 people, including many women and children.
Israel, too, has been continuing its aggression against Palestinians in the occupied territories. Among its other acts of sabotage in the region are the provision of medical treatment for the militants fighting the elected government in Syria.
