No Military Presence in Yemen

Iran has no military presence in Yemen, an informed source told ISNA on Wednesday, dismissing as "baseless" recent allegations that an Iranian military officer has been killed in Yemen in an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition.
"No member of Iran's army operates in Yemen. Those who have invited foreign forces and the so-called Arab coalition's troops to destroy Yemen and kill their compatriots realize that they have no credibility among their own people and such news is aimed at covering up their atrocities," the source said.
A conflict between the Yemeni government led by the Houthi movement and the fugitive president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi has killed thousands of people and triggered a humanitarian crisis in one of the Arab world's poorest countries.
The media close to the Hadi government also claimed two Lebanese nationals were killed along with the Iranian officer, who they said were conducting a reconnaissance mission.
An Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia intervened in the conflict by launching an air campaign in March 2015 to bring Hadi to power and prevent the Houthis and forces loyal to the former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, from taking the reins of the country.
