Saudi Arabia has provided the USA and the United Nations with proof that Iran may have passed ballistic missiles to Yemen Houthi rebels. Thanks to this revelation, seen in this video, this issue has been escalated at the United Nations.
The UN Security Council will travel to Washington on Monday to inspect debris from missiles allegedly provided by Iran to Yemen’s Houthi rebels and hold meetings at the White House, diplomats said.
The ambassadors are expected to meet with President Donald Trump as the US administration seeks international action against Iran, diplomats said.
US ambassador Nikki Haley last month presented the fragments as “undeniable” evidence that a ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Houthi rebels at Saudi Arabia in November was Iranian-made.
That claim was bolstered when a UN panel of experts concluded in a recent report to the council that Iran had violated the arms embargo on Yemen by failing to block supplies of missiles to the rebels.
Mrs. Haley has invited her UN counterparts to see the missile debris stored in a warehouse at a Washington military base.
“The evidence is undeniable. The weapons might as well have had ‘Made in Iran’ stickers all over it,” she told a press conference last month.
Yemen is in a civil war, with Iran backing the Houthi rebels, and Saudia Arabia backing the government of Yemen, because Saudi Arabia does NOT want Iran taking control of Yemen. Year after year, Saudi Arabia is watching Iran take over one country after another in the Middle East, creating a great threat to Saudi Arabia.
Why is this a threat to Saudi Arabia? For those who are unfamiliar, Iran represents the Shiite Muslims, while Saudi Arabia represents the Sunni Muslims. Sunnis are the majority of the Muslim population around the world, and in the Middle East.
While the world has prefered to focus on the Israel/Arab conflict as the major conflict in the Middle East, it is not. Our conflict is a pinpoint conflict that most of the Arab/Muslim world does not even care about anymore.
Yet, the true conflict of the Middle East is the battle between the Shiites against the Sunnis, which is Iran against Saudi Arabia.
