Iran must be made accountable for ballistic missiles sent to Houthis, Saudi Arabia tells UN

NEW YORK: Iran should be made accountable for supplying Houthi militia ballistic missiles to target Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative at the UN Abdallah Al-Moallimi handed the official Saudi letter to the Secretary General of the UN and the presiding head of the Security Council for this month.
In the letter, Saudi Arabia demanded that UN Security Council acts responsibly to uphold international peace and stability, and apprehend Iran for supplying ballistic missiles to Yemen’s Houthi militia.
The Saudi complain letter coincide with a meeting to be held Tuesday between UN Secretary GeneralAntonio Guteres and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
The Saudi led coalition in Yemen displayed new evidence pertaining to Iran’s effort to smuggle missiles to the Houthi militia in Yemen.
Earlier, Saudi Arabia’s government said it sees in the continued attacks by Houthi militia a “clear Iranian involvement in supplying Houthi with advanced ballistic missiles in clear defiance of United Nations’ Security Council resolutions 2216 and 2231.” This comes after Saudi Arabia air defense forces intercepted Sunday 7 ballistic missiles targeting Riyadh and other Saudi cities.
