Influential Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr has urged for an end to the Saudi-led aggression and the massacre of Yemeni people.

Saudi Arabia should "learn a lesson", especially after the recent unrest in some parts of the kingdom, and "stop the bloodbath in Yemen", Sadr said in a speech.

Earlier, he had slammed the Riyadh regime for launching a war in which hundreds of Yemenis have been killed just because of opposing fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been conducting deadly air strikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

According to Yemen's Freedom House Foundation, the Saudi airstrikes have claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Yemeni people so far while more than 7,000 others have been wounded, most of them civilians.

On May 27, the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a statement that innocent Yemeni people are paying the "highest price" in the deadly Saudi aggression against Yemen.
