This is not a minor event, rather it is a very grave crime. They do not understand what the month of Ramadan and a month of haraam are and they do not differentiate between children and adults. They have murdered so many children! Well, this is a grave crime as well which has unfortunately been committed by the Saudi government. However, they have done so with the support of America, with its approval and with its weapons – the weapons and ammunitions that are from America. It is they who are providing them with all the resources. Even when the United Nations wants to say something in this regard – now, after a lifetime of silence, it has decided to say something true and to condemn this course of action – they shut its mouth with money, with threats and with pressure.
