Iran dismisses US allegations concerning Yemen missiles

IRNA – The Iranian defense minister categorically dismissed the US allegations accusing Iran of supporting Yemen missile attacks on Saudi Arabia.

Brigadier General Amir Hatami told reporters on Sunday that the enemy uses every opportunity to make allegations against Iran.

Commenting on the US officials’ accusations against Iran, following Yemen missile attack on a Saudi airport on Saturday, he said that they are ready ‘to blame Iran for any event in the region’.

‘Of course, such measures by enemy are not surprising,’ he added.

The Yemeni army has confirmed targeting the King Khalid international airport in the Saudi capital, Riyadh by a long-range ballistic missile. The Saudi regime also confirmed the missile attack.
