Saudi-led coalition in Yemen says United Nations assertion 'biased'

Saudi-led coalition in Yemen says United Nations assertion 'biased'

Yemen, one of the Arab world's poorest countries, is embroiled in a proxy war between the Houthi armed movement, allied with Iran, and a USA -backed military coalition headed by Saudi Arabia.

The Houthis, who are locked in war with Yemen's Saudi-backed government, earlier said they had fired a missile at Saudi Arabia's south-western province of Najran in a statement tweeted by their Al-Masirah television channel.

Saudi officials blamed Iran for being behind the launch of the Burkan 2-H rocket, and described it as an "act of war".

The broadcaster provided no further details, including the location of the alleged missile's target. The scattered fragments of the shot down missile caused minor damage to private property of a citizen in the Najran region while there was no loss of life, according to Col.

Malki renewed his call for the worldwide community to take more serious and effective steps to stop the Iranian violations of the continuing smuggling and transfer of ballistic missiles and weapons to terrorist and outlawed groups in Yemen.

In December, US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley presented what she called "undeniable" evidence that the missile was Iranian-made.

On Tuesday, the Saudi-led military coalition fighting in Yemen denied blocking aid and basic supplies from entering.

More than 10,000 people have been killed since the coalition intervened.

The United Nations calls Yemen the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with 8 million people on the brink of starvation.
