A Saudi-led campaign in Yemen has come under heavy criticism since an air strike this month on a funeral gathering in the Yemeni capital Sanaa that killed 140 people according to a United Nations’ estimate and 82 according to the Houthis.
Jubeir said Saudi Arabia was being very careful to abide by humanitarian law in the Yemen conflict. He said that those responsible for the funeral bombing would be punished while victims would be compensated.
When asked about an offensive on Daesh militants in the Iraqi city of Mosul, Jubeir said Daesh would lose the war. But he added that he was worried about Shia militias entering Mosul and “engaging in bloodbaths.”
