Saudi Arabia Threatens Iran, Blaming Them for Yemeni Missiles

  • Saudi Arabia Threatens Iran, Blaming Them for Yemeni Missiles

Saudi Arabia has been leading an aerial bombing campaign in support of the government and against the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

The Minister of State, Cabinet's member and Acting Minister of Culture and Information, Dr. Essam bin Saad bin Saeed, said in a statement to Saudi Press Agency (SPA) following the session that the Cabinet praised US President Donald Trump's appreciation to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, upon his meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Vice President of the Council of Ministers, and Minister of Defense during his current official visit to the US.

He denied that his country has supplied missiles to the Yemeni Houthi militants who target Saudi Arabia's inner posts.

"Iran is the appendicitis in the body of the world and should fix itself or else the world will fix the Iranian situation", spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said. It's mere propaganda to boost the threat of Iran and the Houthis. While liked by some diplomats during his term, he irritated many others with his strong-arm approach to diplomacy.

"Iran has enabled the conflict in Yemen to spill into neighboring countries and undermines worldwide efforts to resolve the conflict, exacerbating the suffering of the Yemeni people".

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.

The Saudi-led coalition revealed on Monday "evidence" of the Iranian role in trafficking weapons to Yemen.

Military escalation in response to the latest rocket salvo could mean more coalition air strikes - which have been widely criticised for killing civilians - or mobilising the Saudi National Guard from a mostly static position along the border to undertake a concerted ground assault inside northern Yemen.

"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.

Khoshrou called on the Muslin world and the worldwide community to pressure Saudi Arabia to stop war in Yemen. By turning up the heat on Iran, the Trump administration can provoke the regime in Tehran to increase its engagement in conflicts across the broader Middle East that have already intensified in unsafe ways over the past five years.

The top general said the Yemeni nation has come under military aggression, and hence, it is resisting the aggressors.

Iran's ambassador to the United Nations has rejected baseless Saudi allegations of Tehran sending missiles to Yemen, urging the regime in Riyadh to stop "warmongering" and engage, instead, in dialog with its neighbor.
