Iran said Thursday that Saudi jets carried out airstrikes on its embassy in Yemen.
The building was partly damaged by the attack and several security officers were injured as a result, according to reports from Tehran.
A spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Jaber Ansari, described the strikes as "a conscious and deliberate attack from Saudi Arabia," according to ISNA news agency.
Ansari has called on the Saudis to pay reparations for what he called a breach of international conventions and said that Tehran intends to respond with legal action, according to the report.
Shiite Iran and Saudi Arabia back opposite sides in the civil war in Yemen. Relations were further soured earlier this week when Saudi Arabia executed Shiite Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a fiery critic of the kingdom's Sunni authorities.
