Riyadh demands UNSC to hold Tehran accountable for missile attacks

Iran has rejected Saudi Arabia’s accusations of providing missiles to Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and alleges that such claims were aimed at diverting attention from Riyadh’s war crimes in Yemen.

According to Tehran based Tasnim news agency, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) political deputy Brigadier General Yadollah Javani told on Tuesday that all routes to send weapons to Yemen are blocked as the “oppressed nation” remains under a full Saudi blockade.

Earlier on Monday Saudi-led coalition spokesman Turki al-Malki had displayed wreckage of what he said were fragments of ballistic missiles supplied to the Houthis by Iran. He said “The missiles launched against Saudi territory were smuggled from Iran” and warned that the alliance reserves “the right to respond against Iran at the right time and right place.”

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has demanded UN Security Council to hold Iran accountable for Yemen’s Houthi ballistic missiles fired towards the kingdom and called on the world body to bear its responsibilities to maintain international security and stability.

According to Al-Arabia, Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative at UN Abdullah Al-Muallami has submitted a letter to the UN Secretary General Antonia Guterres and the president of UN Security Council in this regard.
