Defense Experts Reviewing Haley’s Weapons Claims

Iran will soon file a complaint with the United Nations over a recent US claim that missile debris allegedly retrieved in Saudi Arabia is of Iranian origin, the defense minister said.
Amir Hatami added on Monday that Iranian military technicians are investigating the US allegations and are preparing a complaint to be filed with the world body, Press TV reported.
“The enemies can make whatever claim, but once the complaint is filed, a part of the missiles should be handed over to Iran so we can present a final conclusion after inspections,” he said.
On Thursday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley appeared in a staged show in front of a large, charred tube that she claimed was “concrete evidence” that Iran was providing missiles to Yemen. A Saudi-led coalition launched a war against Yemen in 2015 to restore to power its ally, the ousted president Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi. Yemeni Houthi fighters have been firing missiles in retaliatory attacks against Saudi targets every now and then. One such missile targeting a Riyadh airport was intercepted on Nov. 5. Saudi and US officials claim the missile was Iranian made. Tehran has rejected the accusations and said the “evidence” presented by Haley was “fabricated.”
