The Yemeni deputy defense minister Abdel Kader al-Amudi has accused Iran of supplying ballistic missiles to the Houthi movement and assisting the rebels in modernizing old rockets.

“Iran is directly involved in the ongoing war. Tehran supplies the Houthis with ballistic missiles and helps them to improve those missiles that were previously used by the Yemeni army, which have now come into the possession of the rebels,” the official stated.

He also noted that only small groups of the foreign forces, from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Sudan assist the government in its fight against the Houthis, while the overwhelming majority of the government forces consists of the Yemeni soldiers.

The country has been engulfed in an ongoing conflict between the government and the Houthi movement.

Since March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthis at Yemeni President Hadi’s request. The movement has repeatedly launched missiles from Yemeni territory targeting different cities in Saudi Arabia over the course of the conflict.

The Saudi Coalition has a complete stranglehold of transport routes into the Yemen , so is Iran using flying carpets or invisible ships to arm the Houthis ?

Or is this just a Saudi Coalition excuse for being thwarted by the Houthis ?

Smuggling through Oman then through Qaedan/ISIS held areas then bribes… With Saudis paying $10 a day to their mercenaries, it’s not a big problem. Iran had Osama, his son Hamza and Zarqawi (ISIS founder) hiding in the country for a while and smuggled them elsewhere when it came too hot to go on hiding them, al-Zawahiri can help, and Hazma is more open. There are Qaeda held area just along Houthis’ border and they have bizarre relations with UAE. Iran also created ISIS. As they did in Syria, they’re playing both sides. Also, Iran has a lot of submarines… Launching… Read more »

We have the confession (of those who arm terrorists) and no proof for your claim.

You sir are either very misinformed OR you are a Hasbara paid troll with your claims of Iran creating ISIS. I suspect you are the latter. Where is your evidence to back up this CLAIM? Let me provide links to some article’s that show the link of SA and the US to ISIS https://www.businessinsider.com.au/omar-al-shishani-isis-commander-and-us-2015-9?r=UK&IR=T and https://www.washingtoninstitute.org/policy-analysis/view/saudi-funding-of-and https://www.businessinsider.com.au/saudi-arabia-sent-inmates-against-assad-2013-1?r=US&IR=T Even the MSM Hasn’t suggested that Iran created ISIS and we all know MSM lies and publishes fake news. So clearly you are nothing more than a troll.

You’re a broken record on this website. Your disingenuous claim that ISIS is a creation of Iran and that latter is working with the former to smuggle weapons to the Houthis. If you hadn’t noticed there is a blockade by the coalition of Gulf autocracies supported with weapons sales, logistics and aerial surveillance by the USA and UK. The Syrians in their own country can’t get within 50 miles of their own town, al-Tanf because of an American self-declared exclusion zone. How would Iran try to smuggle by weapons sea and trying to avoid all the navies of the USA… Read more »

This highlights the ineptitude of the Saudi military. There are those that will continue to spread total manure, in the hopes that some might actually believe their lies. It is the same old story, on par with Saddam had WMDs (western lies), Saddam was working with AQ (when he was killing them), Syria was working with ISIS…ad nauseum. When it smells like a lie and it comes from a troll or hasbara op, it usually is. The best (and stupidest) lie is that Iran works with ISIS, an Israeli/US creature. Only fools believe that, trolls and hasbara don’t, it’s just… Read more »

Wrong! Tehran puppets Houthi started the war doing a coup in Sa’ana, reinstalling resigned president Saleh, who ended resigning under popular pressure since he tried to change the democratic constitution to become a life-term president and groom his son as successor! Nevertheless, since Saleh ended considering a peace treaty with Hadi in order to stop this bloödy war and maybe not so willing Yemen to become a puppet state just like Lebanon, Houthis ended assassinating Saleh in December 2017. In other terms, Houthis don’t even have the botched legitimacy of siding with the resigned former president, so, they’ve became nothing… Read more »

There is no real proof that Ansarullah are anyone’s puppets.
When it comes to “legitimacy”
-this is Yemeni legitimacy:””Yemen: Thousands mark fourth anniversary of Ansarallah Movement (video)”
-Hadis “legitimacy” is the fact that he is hiding in Saudi Arabia and does not control neither Sana’a nor Aden
“I despise them”-no you defend them wherever you can.
“Some kind of giant YPG” There are already enough Imperialist mercenaries, traitors and puppets in the ME. We do not need more of them (ok you need them because they are your puppets).
P.S. Why do you defend the puppet occupation of northern Syria? Where is the “legitimacy” there?

Moderators: tell me why you continue to block my posts. Don’t tell me they are caught by your ‘spam’ filter, that is BS. if someone is flagging me as spam, block them. If this is your way censoring posts, have the guts to at least tell people. This is getting old. If this continues, I will start mentioning how you are censoring on this site when I post on SF, NEO and others. I know this is being done to other as well, as I have seen posts to that effect.

WHO furious about the misuse of given ambulances on the Houthi territory : Now, since AMN is deliberately one-eyed on the Yemeni case, thus falling into propaganda vs. journalism which is reporting POV of both (or more) sides… https://twitter.com/RepYemenEnglish Obviously siding on the Republican side. Nvertheless, AMN shoud verify more closely what they publish, e.g. alleged Houthi drone strike against an Emrati international airport : 1.) If it really had happened, it would be a war crime. 2.) These airports are the biggest civilian hub on Earth, all airlines are doing stops there in order to refuel, there isprobably the… Read more »

1. What does the first photo proof (except Zio-Wahhabi fetish of wanting to bomb ambulances)?
2. “Obviously siding on the Republican side.” Which “Republicans”?
And this self-declared “Republican Yemen English” account is funny. They have a picture of Abdullah al-Sallal-the first president of the Yemen Arab Republic (North Yemen) who (with the help of Nasser’s Egypt and the USSR) fought a war against mercenaries armed and funded by the UK, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Zionists (the same forces that today attack Yemen).

It is best not to reply to this idiot. He is a troll whose mission it is to disrupt. He disseminates only lies/propaganda. Zionism is his stock in trade, that and their lies. It is best to ignore him. If he gets no clicks, up or down, he will leave. Hasbara are not paid if they do not get results. It is strange though that his posts appear immediately and others have to wait to be ‘moderated’…like 4 days or more. Very strange. This site may be infiltrated.
