Iran Rejects US Claims of Supplying Missiles to Yemen

Iran Rejects US Claims of Supplying Missiles to Yemen

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari

The commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has rejected claims by the US and its allies that Tehran supplies missiles to Yemeni forces.

Alwaght- The commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has rejected claims by the US and its allies that Tehran supplies missiles to Yemeni forces.

"Missiles fired at Saudi Arabia belong to Yemen which have been overhauled and their range have been increased," Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Sunday.

Jafari added that there is no possibility at all that the Islamic Republic could transfer missiles to Yemen.

The Iranian General said the US and its puppets have so far spread many lies and leveled many allegations against Iran.

"How is it possible to send weapons, specially missiles, to a country which is fully under siege and there is even no possibility to send medical aid and foodstuff?" the IRGC commander asked.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on December 14 appeared in a staged show in front of a large and charred tube that she claimed was "concrete evidence" that Iran was providing missiles to Yemeni forces fighting against Saudi Arabia's war of aggression on their country.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also dismissed as "baseless" the US allegation that Tehran supplies missiles to Yemen, saying it was an attempt by Washington to whitewash its war crimes in the West Asia region.

Last December, Yemen’s Ansarullah movement fired a ballistic missile towards the Saudi capital, Riyadh, in retaliation for the regime’s deadly attacks. The Burkan (Volcano) H-2 missile was fired towards al-Yamamah Palace, the official residence of King Salman. The Burkan missile has an estimated range of 800km.

It was the second Houthi missile attack against Riyadh over the past two months. The first attack targeted Riyadh international airport on November 4, but Riyadh claimed that it managed to intercept the projectile.

Nearly 14,000 Yemenis, mostly women, children and the elderly, have been killed since the onset of Saudi Arabia’s military campaign against Yemen in 2015. Much of the Arabian Peninsula country's infrastructure, including hospitals, schools and factories, has been reduced to rubble due to the war. The Saudi-led war has also triggered a deadly cholera epidemic and famine across Yemen.
