  • Tehran: Riyadh Accuses Iran of Supporting Houthis to 'Cover Up Defeats in Yemen'

This criminal aggression by the Tehran-backed Houthi militias proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the insurgents in clear violation of UN Resolutions 2216 and 2231, he said.

Gholamali Khoshrou said on Wednesday that the three-year Saudi war on Yemen has no legitimacy, adding that the bombardment campaign against the Arab state has achieved nothing but massacre, hunger, diseases and the destruction of its infrastructure.

Qassemi also referred to the threatening statements of a Saudi military commander about Iran and said it goes without saying that such warmongering and irresponsible statements can be followed up legally and internationally.

Iran denies it is backing the Houthis.

"With adventurism and inexperience, the Saudis have helped inflict cholera on millions of Yemeni people and targeted children and civilians in the course of their bombardments", he said.

The study by Conflict Armament Research comes as the West and United Nations researchers identified Iran as supplying arms to Yemen's Houthis, a Shiite rebel group which has held the country's capital since September 2014.

Mets slugger Rusty Staub dead at 73
Staub, a six-time all-star, played 23 seasons from 1963 to 1985 with Houston, Montreal, the Mets, Detroit and Texas. The Mets came close to derailing what would become a three-peat dynasty in Oakland, losing in seven games.

In Paris, the group's spokesman Shahin Ghobadi said in response to the Iranian official's statement that "the notion that the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran has funded ambassador Bolton or any other American officials is simply a lie and is a mere joke."In a speech at an opposition group event near Paris in July, Bolton expressed hope that Iran's government would be toppled "by 2019".

"If Iran is genuinely committed to supporting a political solution in Yemen - as it has publicly stated - then it should stop sending in weapons which prolong the conflict, fuel regional tensions, and pose threats to worldwide peace and security", they said in the statement.

During the meeting, bin Salman presented a $930-million check to the United Nations chief for "efforts to ease" the humanitarian crisis of the kingdom's own making in Yemen. Since then thousands of Yemenis majority civilians have been killed.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war on Yemen in March 2015.

France on Thursday accused Iran of supplying weapons to Houthi rebels fighting a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
