  • Israel's Military Intel Chief: Since Nuke Deal, Iran Has Gotten Bolder With Missiles and Support for Terrorists

Iran has said it supports the Houthis' cause in Yemen but has repeatedly denied arming them, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia of evidence of weapon shipments, AFP reported.

He denied that his country has supplied missiles to the Yemeni Houthi militants who target Saudi Arabia's inner posts. One of the missiles caused the war's first casualties in the Saudi capital Riyadh when falling debris struck a home and killed an Egyptian man and injured two others.

On Monday, the Saudi-led coalition, which is engaged in a bloody military campaign against Yemen, displayed wreckage of what it claimed to be fragments of ballistic missiles supplied to the Houthis by Iran. They nabbed over 31 terabytes of data and fed it back to the Iranian military.

On Monday morning, the family was working on finalizing funeral arrangements and returning the bodies of the Sharp family to Iowa. Weland said the family is hoping to hold a funeral at Southwestern Community College in Creston, Iowa.

"If Iran is genuinely committed to supporting a political solution in Yemen - as it has publicly stated - then it should stop sending in weapons which prolong the conflict, fuel regional tensions, and pose threats to global peace and security", they claimed in the joint statement.

Yemen's war fits into a broader decades-long struggle for supremacy between Middle East powerhouses Iran and Saudi Arabia, which fund and train proxy forces in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and accuse each other of backing terrorism. They were once strong enough to force the legitimate government to flee, but the Saudi-led Arab coalition has weakened them.

"They may make similar moves in order to be seen to be doing something, but it won't really change the dynamics of the conflict", said Jane Kinninmont, Middle East expert at Chatham House in London.

Several Western countries, the USA and the United Kingdom in particular, are accused of being complicit in the Saudi-led aggression on Yemen as they supply the Riyadh regime with advanced weapons and military equipment.

Iran rejected the groundless claims, with its Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) saying the accusations are aimed at diverting attention from Riyadh's war crimes in Yemen. "He tried to convince me that Israel should strike Iran".

In a Tuesday statement, Iran's Foreign Ministry said that the Saudi rulers can not cover up their repeated defeats in Yemen by levelling accusations against others.
