Mass Execution in Saudi Arabia Draws Strong Wave of Condemnations

The Shura Council condemned the Saudi regime's execution of a number of people, including two Yemeni prisoners.

According to Navid Shahed website, In a statement, the council stressed that the executions of prisoners by the Saudi regime is a crime that contradicts all laws, norms and human values.

It considered this crime a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law, and further evidence of the Saudi regime's disregard for international norms and laws.

The Council renewed its call on the international community, UN and all humanitarian and human rights organizations to condemn this crime and to pressure Saudi Arabia to respect its obligations under international humanitarian law.

The Council called on the United Nations to carry out their humanitarian and moral responsibilities and work to lift the siege and stop the US-Saudi aggression on Yemen.

For its part, The National Committee for Women affirmed that this crime is incompatible with all divine laws, norms and human values, and is a flagrant violation of international laws, including the Third Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners.


Saudi Arabia has executed 81 prisoners in a single day over "terror-related offenses," in the largest mass execution carried out by the highly-conservative Arab kingdom in recent memory.
In an announcement on Saturday, the state-run Saudi Press Agency said 81 inmates, including seven Yemenis and a Syrian, were executed, alleging that the suspects had been convicted of a variety of crimes, including killings and belonging to militant groups.
The mass execution in Saudi Arabia has drawn a strong wave of condemnation from various Islamic and Saudi opposition groups, which say most of those executed were jailed only for exercising their right to free expression of opinion.
