Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah condemned the horrible Saudi massacre in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa which claimed on Saturday hundreds of civilian martyrs and wounded, noting that KSA’s warplanes deliberately targeted the funeral gathering to raise the death toll as much as possible.
“The Saudi massacre is not surprising, for KSA’s regime has been accustomed to committing crimes in the Arab peninsula, which was later named Saudi Arabia, Iraq and in other areas in the region,” Sayyed Nasrallah added.
At the beginning of his speech during Hezbollah ceremony which marks the seventh night of Muharram, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the Yemenis will defeat the terrorist Saudi aggression on their country, offering the deep condolences to the families of the martyrs and hoping the wounded will have a speedy recovery.
