France cautious over USA 'evidence' on Iran weaponry in Yemen

Everywhere you find turmoil in the Middle East, you find Irans hand in it, Defense Secretary James N. Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon yesterday.

On Thursday, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley appeared standing before parts of a ballistic missile that she claimed Iran delivered to Houthis, which was sacked at Saudi Arabia's Riyadh airport last month.

This person's comments have their roots in her lack of understanding of military issues, Brigadier General Jazayeri said in response to Haley, who claimed that the Islamic Republic has supplied Yemen with ballistic missiles.

He also said it was "healthy" for the global community to know "what Iran is up to", accusing Iran of contributing to the deaths of innocent people, in reference to the Yemeni conflict.

Haley stood in front of an Iranian missile that Iran's proxy - the Houthis - fired at Riyadh International Airport, a civilian target in Saudi Arabia.

Haley's briefing included physical evidence that Iran is providing ballistic missiles to the Houthis, Mattis said.

"No amount of alternative facts or alternative evidence covers up USA complicity in war crimes", Zarif said in a post on his official Twitter account.

The United States on Thursday presented for the first time pieces of what it said were Iranian weapons supplied to the Houthis, describing it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating UN resolutions.

Tehran rejected the allegations as "provocative and baseless", saying the Yemenis had shown an "independent" reaction to the Saudi bombing campaign on their country.

"While Iran has been calling for ceasefire, aid and dialogue in Yemen from day 1, U.S. has sold weapons enabling its allies to kill civilians and impose starvation".

During an impromptu news conference, Mattis addressed questions about Iran and USA efforts to expose Iran's malicious behavior.

According to the United Nations, the situation in Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis across the world, as two-thirds of the country's population need aid and more than seven million people are hungry.
