CAIRO – 22 August 2020: Speaker of the Arab Parliament Mishaal Al-Salami has said the Iranian regime is responsible for terrorist attempts carried out by Houthis targeting Saudi Arabia.
 
Al-Salami condemned the Houthi militia’s firing of an armed drone and a ballistic missile towards the country, state news agency Saba news reported.
 
He further added that Tehran aims to destroy the Arab world by providing Houthis with smart weapons, ballistic missiles, drones, as well as military advisors.
 
Al-Salami also blamed the international community for failing to take strict measures against the Iranian regime, making the country continue to turn “Yemeni territories into a launchpad to target its neighboring countries,” the report said.
 
The Saudi-led coalition announced intercepting a dhow carrying hundreds of weapons, made in Iran, early in June, including missiles, sniper rifles and ammunition. 
 
The dhow was seized off the Yemeni coastal town of Mocha on the Red Sea and was heading to the Houthis, the coalition said.
 
The Yemeni government has swiftly demanded that the international community put an end to Iranian meddling in Yemen in their sending arms shipments that fuel the war to the Houthis.
