Bombs disguised as rocks in Yemen reportedly show Iran aid

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi shrugged off Saudi Arabia's threats against the Islamic Republic, saying that the Riyadh regime is not powerful enough to "live out its dreams" (against Iran).

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".

"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.

A missile attack this week on Riyadh has raised the risk of an escalation in the Yemen war in a region riven with interwoven conflicts, but a direct confrontation between arch-foes Saudi Arabia and Iran still appears unlikely.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called to "fix or nix" the deal, while U.S. President Donald Trump threatens to pull out of the agreement in May.

The group further reported that drones used by the Houthi rebels to crash into Patriot missile batteries in Saudi Arabia share "near-identical design and construction characteristics" of Iranian drones. This is the only way to stop the Houthis and the Iranian Regime from taking hold of Yemen.

Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, now touring the United States, must balance animosity towards Iran with the need for stability as he pitches the kingdom's economic transformation plan to foreign investors and drums up support for containing Iran's regional influence.

Yemen's war fits into a broader decades-long struggle for supremacy between Middle East powerhouses Iran and Saudi Arabia, which fund and train proxy forces in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and accuse each other of backing terrorism.

Rashed wrote: "The situation would have been frightening; much worse and more serious for both Yemen and Saudi Arabia, and would have caused a wider war than the one we have witnessed in the past 36 months".

The Yemen conflict pits a coalition of Western-friendly states led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against the Houthis, who are sympathetic to Iran but deny being a pawn of its Shi'ite Muslim theocracy. They were once strong enough to force the legitimate government to flee, but the Saudi-led Arab coalition has weakened them. The military campaign has killed and injured over 600,000 civilians, according to the latest figures released by the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights.
