Iran Guards rejected claims of supplying weapons to Yemeni rebels

Vastavam web: Iran’s Revolutionary Guards today rejected claims that the country is supplying weapons to Yemeni rebels after they fired several missiles into Saudi Arabia.”The aim of such claims by Saudi Arabia is to divert public opinion from the atrocities (they) are committing in Yemen,” said Yadollah Javani, a political officer for the Revolutionary Guards, according to the conservative Tasnim news agency.”The Saudis have committed large-scale atrocities and attacked the oppressed nation of Yemen during the last two and three years with the help of Americans, the Zionists and some regional reactionary states,” said Javani.

“Therefore… they raise claims including accusing Iran of sending weapons to the nation of Yemen.” He said it was impossible to send weapons to Yemen due to the blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition, which has been engaged in an aerial bombing campaign against the Huthis since 2015.
