TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (Press Shia) –The US presented for the first time pieces of what it said were Iranian weapons supplied to the Houthi in Yemen, claiming it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating UN resolutions.
Displaying some fragments of weaponary at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling just outside of Washington, US defence ministry presenting some explanations tried to concluded that they came from Iran.
The arms included charred remnants of what the Pentagon said was an Iranian-made short-range ballistic missile fired from Yemen on Nov. 4 at King Khaled International Airport outside Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh, as well as a drone and an anti-tank weapon recovered in Yemen by the Saudis.
“The US has long believed that Iran is providing weaponry to proxies and partners and militias throughout the region, and what we have here to show you today is proof,” said Pentagon spokeswoman Laura Seal.
In a similar way In 2003 using the same tactic, the US invaded Iraq after Colin Powell, the former US secretary of state justified the invasion resorting to misleading intelligence.
Powell, the first secretary of state in the administration of George W. Bush, the former republican US president, which declared war on Iraq in 2003, later told Al Jazeera on the 10th anniversary of the Sep 11th attacks on US soil that the information was a “blot on my record”.
