Addressing a religious course in the Iranian city of Qom on Wednesday, Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi said Saudi Arabia’s recent attack on Iran’s embassy in Yemen did not draw any condemnation thanks to Riyadh’s petrodollars.

He also censured the violation of human rights and lack of freedom in the kingdom.

Last week, Saudi Arabia launched a rocket attack on the Iranian embassy in Sana’a, which incurred damages to the building and wounded several Iranian guards.
