Saudi air defences intercept missiles

  • 40 Houthis killed in intense fighting in Yemen's Hodeidah

It violates UN Resolutions with regards to ballistic missiles - and the Iranians must be held accountable for this.

"These missiles are Iranian manufactured and delivered to the Huthis".

In a statement, Colonel Turki al-Malki, spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, said that Saudi air defences had intercepted one missile, with another falling in an uninhabited desert outside of the capital.

"I happened to read a trade press article in 2006 that appeared suddenly and then it was gone... it wasn't reported again and the gist of the article was the reason the Bush-Cheney administration is so hawkish on Iran was because the U.S. nuclear power industry is very displeased that it's losing business to the Russian nuclear power industry in Iran", Kamps continued, adding, "you have to wonder what's going on in the background of all this".

Anwar Gargash, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, wrote on Twitter: "Iran interpreted the JCPOA as concurrence of its regional hegemony".

Saudi Arabia accuses its arch-rival Iran of smuggling missiles to the Houthis - a charge Tehran denies.

'If I allowed this deal to stand, there would soon be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, ' he said.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki blamed the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen for the attack.


"Who supported Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran?".

Abdulaziz Al-Sager, head of the Jeddah-based Gulf Research Center, said the message was significant in that it reflected Gulf Arab concerns.

"We will do whatever it takes to protect our people".

Trump later announced that the administration would instead be imposing new sanctions against Iran, which the US Treasury Department said would go effect in November 2018.

The United Nations, Western nations and Saudi Arabia say Iran supplies the Houthis with long-range missiles capable of reaching Riyadh.

"There is a real risk of escalation, especially between Iran and Israel".

"The recent Arab summits in Jordan and Saudi Arabia were clear in expressing the extreme exasperation from Iran's actions in the Arab region and in calling for the need to alter this behavior", Abul Gheit continued. "The consequences could be severe", said Joost Hiltermann, Program Director, Middle East and North Africa at The International Crisis Group.
