Tehran (IP) - Hundreds of Iranian students rallied outside the United Nations office in Tehran to protest against Saudi aggression on Yemen, after Saudi Arabia carried out dozens of airstrikes against the Yemen in the past days.

Iran PressIran News: In 2015, Saudi Arabia led many of its allies,including the United Arab Emirates, in launching an onslaught against its southern neighbor with the aim of restoring a friendly regime toppled in a popular uprising. Enjoying complete arms, logistical and political backing from the United States, the coalition has maintained the brutal attacks since then.

The protesters took to the streets on Thursday, chanting slogans against Riyadh and its allies for their brutal acts against Yemeni people.

The protesters, which included students from the University of Tehran and Yemeni students living in Iran, denounced the international community’s silence on the Saudi aggression.

The development comes on the heels of more than 50 airstrikes by Saudi warplanes against various districts in war-torn Yemen in just 24 hours, which killed more than 90 civilians.

Yemeni officials have called for an international investigation into the airstrikes.

According to the United Nations, Yemen is experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

Most recently, the joint forces carried out two retaliatory operations condemned the “Yemen Storm 1” and “Yemen Storm 2,” which saw them striking targets deep inside Dubai and Abu Dhabi over the past week.
