    The Iranian Foreign Ministry has summoned the Saudi charge d'affaires to submit a note of protest to him about a rocket attack near the country's embassy in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

    TEHRAN (Sputnik) —  According to the ministry, two rockets fired by the Saudi-led coalition that is fighting against Houthi rebels exploded near the Iranian embassy.

    "During the meeting, Iran warned of consequences of indifference to the international responsibilities of Saudi Arabia and other countries involved in the war on Yemen and also of the immunity of Iranian diplomats in the country."
