The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen accused on Thursday Iran of sending weapons to the Houthi militias in order to prolong the battle in the war-torn country.

Official spokesman of the Coalition Colonel Turki al-Maliki told Al-Arabiya television: “Iran’s meddling in Yemen is not limited to ballistic missiles.”

He therefore demanded that the international community take action to stop Tehran’s violations in the world and hold it accountable for smuggling weapons to the Houthis.

He revealed that the Coalition was cooperating with the United Nations to eliminate the flaws in the investigation and search mechanism, stressing that the alliance was committed to restoring legitimacy in Yemen in spite of Iran’s interference.
