Iran official: No military solution to YemenTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Iranian Parliament Speaker's Special Advisor on International Affairs, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said, “There is no military solution to Yemen at all,” he said in response to Saudi crimes.

He also said Saudi continuous aggression and killing of Yemenis oppressed people is clear disrespect to the philosophy of Hajj rituals.

On Wednesday, an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition pounding Yemen struck a two-story hotel near the capital Sana’a, killing 46 people, according to the latest tally by Lebanese al-Mayadeen television channel.

The fighter jets targeted a hotel in the town of Arhab, about 35 kilometers north of Sana’a, officials said.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahram Qassemi called on the UN and other international bodies to investigate the killing of civilians in the attack.

Saudi Arabia has been unleashing brutal military attacks against Yemen for more than two years to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstall the former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The war, which has been accompanied by a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, has so far killed over 12,000 people and led to a humanitarian crisis in the impoverished state.
