Iran is prepared to admit Yemenis injured in the Saudi onslaughts on the Arabian Peninsula country for treatment, the head of Iran's committee to support Yemeni people said, as the Saudi-led coalition has stepped up airstrikes on Yemen.

"During 108 days of Al Saud's aggressions against Yemen, we have been witnessing severe losses (inflicted on) the people of the country," Esmaeil Ahmadi Moqaddam said in a press conference in Tehran on Sunday.

He added that over 3500 people, mostly women and children, have been martyred and 15,000 others injured in the attacks.

Ahmadi Moqaddam emphasized that from the beginning of the Saudi war, the Islamic Republic announced its readiness to admit Yemeni victims for treatment.

Unfortunately though, he added, the transfer of Yemenis to Iran has not been possible to date because of the Saudi blockade of Yemen.

Saudi Arabia has been bombarding different areas in Yemen since March 26 without any authorization from the United Nations and heedless of international calls for the cessation of its deadly airstrikes against the impoverished country.

In the latest attack, Saudi-led air strikes killed 21 civilians in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a on Monday morning.
The United Nations brokered a pause in the fighting on Friday to allow humanitarian aid to be delivered, but the

Saudi-led coalition said it had not been asked by the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh, in whose name it is acting, to stop its raids.

A Houthi leader, Saleh al-Samad, described the continued Saudi raids as presenting "a clear challenge to the international community to shoulder its responsibilities and seriously try to stop this aggression".
