Iran rejects Saudi blame over missile, alleges war crimes
TEHRAN - Agence France-Presse
An Iranian foreign ministry statement quoted its spokesman Bahram Ghassemi as saying the accusations by the Saudi-led coalition were "unjust, irresponsible, destructive and provocative".
Saudi forces intercepted and destroyed the ballistic missile launched on Nov. 4 from Yemen, where the kingdom leads a coalition in support of the recognised government against Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels.
He also called on Riyadh to halt its "empty accusations" and its attacks on "defenceless and innocent people as soon as possible and to pave the way for inter-Yemeni dialogue to bring peace to the country".
