US Anti-Iran Claim Over Yemen Denied

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman denied claims made by a US official that a missile used by Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah fighters to destroy an Emirati military vessel was made in Iran.
Bahram Qasemi said on Tuesday the US should take a look at its own heavy dossier concerning the supply of arms and weapons to those attacking civilians in Yemen instead of passing the buck to others, Press TV reported.
Qasemi noted that the accusation has been made, as US planes and weapons are being used to kill Yemeni women and children and destroy hospitals and schools in Yemen. On Saturday, Yemeni forces targeted and destroyed the Emirati vessel in a rocket attack near the Red Sea port city of Mokha. Yemen has been under Saudi military strikes since late March 2015. The war was launched to reinstate the fugitive president, Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is now seeking to grab power by force.
Houthi Ansarullah fighters, allied with Yemeni army factions, and forces loyal to Yemen’s former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, have united to fight back the Saudi invaders.
