Tehran – Iran said Saudi jets on Thursday carried out airstrikes on its embassy in Yemen, and partly damaged it, while several security officers were injured as well.
Jaber Ansari, spokesman of Iranian Foreign Ministry, said in Tehran that the strikes were conscious and deliberate attack from Saudi Arabia.
He said Saudis must pay reparations for the breach of international conventions as Tehran intends to take up the matter.
Shiite Iran and Saudi Arabia back opposite sides in the civil war in Yemen.
Relations were further soured earlier this week, when Saudi Arabia executed Shiite Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a fiery critic of the kingdom’s Sunni authorities. (dpa/NAN)
