“The massacre is an escalation that recalls Iranian mullahs’ execution of its opponents, &launch of mass killings of opponents of its coup, &use of the judiciary under its control as a tool to settle its political scores terrorize its opponents politicians, media & journalists,” he added.

Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia said on Saturday that authorities had executed nine men who were convicted of involvement in the 2018 killing of Saleh al-Samad, then the armed group’s top civilian leader.

Samad, who held the post of president in the Houthi-controlled administration which runs most of northern Yemen, was killed in April 2018 by an Arab Coalition air strike in the port city of Hodeidah on Yemen’s west coast.
