Tehran, Iran: Saudi jets "deliberately" struck Iran's embassy in Yemen in an air raid that wounded staff, Tehran's foreign ministry said on Thursday, as tensions between the two regional powers mounted.
"This deliberate action by Saudi Arabia is a violation of all international conventions that protect diplomatic missions," foreign ministry spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari was quoted as saying by state television.
"The Saudi government is responsible for the damage caused and for the situation of members of staff who were injured," Ansari added, without specifying when the alleged strike took place.
