Parts of Yemen missiles fired at Saudi Arabia were Iranian-made: UN report

Parts of Yemen missiles fired at Saudi Arabia were Iranian-made: UN reportSome components from five missiles fired at Saudi Arabia by Yemen’s Huthi rebels were manufactured in Iran but UN officials are unable to determine when they were sent to Yemen, according to a confidential UN report seen by AFP on Thursday. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council in the 14-page report that debris from the missiles fired since July 2017 “share key design features with a known type of missile manufactured” by Iran. The report, sent to the council on Tuesday, added that “some component parts of the debris were manufactured in the Islamic Republic of Iran” but it remained unclear whether the transfer was in violation of UN restrictions.
