U.S. unveils 'evidence' of Iran weapons in Yemen

US Envoy Says Has 'Irrefutable Evidence' Iran Violating UN Restrictions

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stood before missile remnants that she claimed were covered in Iranian "fingerprints" on Thursday while laying out what she called "irrefutable evidence" that Tehran has violated its worldwide obligations by militarily supporting rebels in Yemen. "Its ballistic missile and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region".

"We must speak with one voice in exposing the regime for what it is: a threat to the peace and security of the entire world". "We did this for a single urgent objective: Because the Iranian regime can not be allow to engage in its lawless behavior any longer".

Saudi Arabia welcomed a United Nations report and a USA stand on Iran's missile supplies to Yemen's Houthis and demanded immediate action to hold Tehran accountable for its actions, state news agency SPA reported. "Now, what's the proper reaction to that - the proper reaction would be too come back and reassess where we are", McGovern suggested, but instead what he calls an "unholy alliance" of the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel "are out to put all kinds of pressure to Iran".

Ms Haley said: "It's hard to find a conflict or a terrorist group in the Middle East that does not have Iran's fingerprints all over it". That attack prompted Saudi Arabia to impose a blockade on Yemen that has exacerbated the humanitarian crisis there. It is not a coincidence that the USA ambassador held her today's press conference two days after her claim in her interview with CNN, claiming that the common fight against Iran is much more important for the American regional allies than the plights of the Palestinians and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"It was made in Iran then sent to Houthi militants in Yemen", Haley said.

The other evidence includes materials from an antitank missile than can travel 2 miles, a kamikaze drone that can take out radar sites and a Shark-33 explosive boat that has a warhead inside that explodes upon impact with another vessel.

The American said: "All of these weapons include parts made in Iran, some by Iran's government defence industry".

"Part of the president's strategy is to clearly show how Iran continues to defy the global community by violating United Nations resolutions".

In a report to the U.N. Security Council, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged the United States to maintain its commitments under the nuclear agreement and "consider the broader implications for the region before taking any further steps". The point of the press conference, she said, was to begin a public campaign that highlights Iran's misdeeds.

The National Security Council is working on ways to respond to the violation along with the departments of State and Defense, and the administration continues to work with Congress on Iran legislation, she said.

Haley's move marks the most aggressive USA effort to substantiate its claim that Iran funnels weapons to the Houthis.Shiite rebels aligned with Iran that have gained a lot of ground in Yemen.

"We're not just seeing activity in Yemen".
