Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has said that the United Nations has witnessed what he called "war crimes" committed by the "Arab coalition" to Yemen, without taking actions, Al-Alam reported.
In a statement posted on his Facebook account, Saleh said, “Aggression against Yemen is so flagrant that does not need any explanation. These atrocities are committed before the eyes of the world, including the United Nations.”
He noted that the UN does not do anything about what he called “contrary to its rights charter and all international humanitarian laws.”
“This international organization is an accomplice in crimes committed by the Arab coalition against our people and country,” Saleh added.
Yemen has been facing almost daily military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March 2015. Yemeni sources have put the death toll from the bloody aggression at about 10,000.
Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and Saleh’s General People’s Congress party, in late July, decided to establish the Supreme Political Council to run the country.
The decision was carried out on August 6, when the Houthis and Saleh’s faction said that they both had an equal share in the 10-member body.
Saleh also said months ago that Saudi Arabia has launched the war on Yemen under the pretext of defending Saudi national security against Iran, a claim that he said is “baseless”.
