Massoud Shadjareh, the head of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, says Saudi Arabia and its Western backers are “equally responsible” for the dire humanitarian situation in Yemen.  

“Undoubtedly this cholera and indeed the suffering and the disease and the malnourishments and all the atrocities which are being committed in Yemen would not have happened if it wasn’t because of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been the forefront of this and indeed those who are helping Saudi Arabia like the West, Britain and the United States in particular, are equally responsible,” Shadjareh told Press TV in an interview on Sunday.
