How convenient: Iran claims fighters found Israeli weapons in Saudi embassy in Yemen
You just knew they'd find a way to blame Israel. Iran's FarsNews is reporting that Israeli weapons have been found in the Saudi embassy in Sanaa, Yemen
Ansarullah sources revealed to the FNA that after
they drove all the 40 Saudi embassy guards out of the embassy and
captured the compound, it found a large cache of Israeli-made weapons
The Yemeni forces also disclosed that they have discovered documents
showing that the US intends to establish a military base on Saudi
Arabia’s Myon Island near Bab al-Mandeb Strait to protect their own
interests and ensure the security of Israel.
The Riyadh government has also asked Tel Aviv for
state-of-the-art weapons to supply the terrorist groups in Yemen and
forces loyal to fugitive President Mansour Hadi.
In April, senior Yemeni officials disclosed that the Riyadh government has used Israeli-made weapons in its airstrikes on Yemen.
"The Saudis are using Israeli weapons in their raids on Yemen," Yemeni Army Commander Taher Rasoul Zadami told FNA.
The reports said Ansarullah took control of the
Saudi embassy in Sana'a in reaction to the Saudis' continued attacks on
residential areas and hospitals alongside army positions in Yemen.
How convenient.... If only it were true... there would be a much bigger story: There are very few weapons that Israel may sell without American approval
(because of the military relations between the two countries - recall this). I guess Iran is afraid of that hot potato.
