'United Nations must list Riyadh for crimes against Yemeni children'

'United Nations must list Riyadh for crimes against Yemeni children'

The report also documents a series of deadly attacks by Saudi-led forces on hospitals and medics over the past two years.

A new report by two international aid groups says Saudi Arabia and its allies must be named in the UN's annual list of perpetrators of child rights violations.

This comes as Riyadh continues to carry out attacks on schools and medical facilities during its military aggression against Yemen.

The report, by Save the Children and Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict, called on UN Secretary General António Guterres to add Saudi Arabia to his list of those responsible for grave violations of children's rights in conflict.

This year's UN report on Children and Armed Conflict is due to be published in the coming months.

In June 2016, the then UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon briefly listed Saudi Arabia for killing children and attacking schools and hospitals in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched its deadly campaign against Yemen in March 2015.

The Saudi aggression has claimed the lives of more than 12,000 people, most of them civilians. Saudi-led campaign lacks any international mandate and has faced increasing criticism.

It is worthy to mention that Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, frequently through his speeches and messages exposed crimes being committed by House of Saud against Muslim Ummah.
