DUBAI: The Iranian regime is responsible for terrorist attempts carried out by Houthis targeting Saudi Arabia, Speaker of the Arab Parliament Mishaal Al-Salami said.
Al-Salami condemned the Houthi militia’s firing of an armed drone and a ballistic missile towards the country, which were intercepted by the Arab Coalition on Thursday, state news agency Saba news reported.
He added that Iran aims to destroy the Arab world by providing Houthis with smart weapons, ballistic missiles, drones, as well as military advisors.
Al-Salami also blamed the international community for failing to take strict measures against the Iranian regime, making the country continue to turn “Yemeni territories into a launchpad to target its neighboring countries,” the report said.
