Haley Says Missile Parts Prove Iran Violated UN Resolutions

In addition, USA officials highlighted technology inside the missile, in both its propulsion and guidance systems, that they said bore the stamp of Iranian defense contractors. As part of this agenda, the USA president raised the same missile-attack accusation against Iran just hours after the missile launch even before Saudi Arabia did so.

Reza Marashi, research director for the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), pointed out that the United Nations report Haley cited as "devastating" proof against Iran has not even been completed, and thus can not possibly amount to "irrefutable" evidence.

Some have specific markings indicating they were manufactured in Iran.

The military materiel showcased Thursday also included what officials said was a drone that could be used for "kamikaze" purposes, equipment from an attack speedboat and remnants of an antitank missile, all of which were described as having been made in Iran.

A separate team of United Nations experts who inspected the missile fragments during a visit to Riyadh last month found a possible link to an Iranian manufacturer, the Shahid Bagheri Industrial Group, which is on the United Nations sanctions blacklist.

It was also "a hell of a day" for the U.S.to accuse Iran of arming Houthi rebels, some commentators observed, given new reports that American arms sent to Syrian opposition groups "frequently ended up in the hands" of ISIS fighters.

The Trump administration said Thursday it would use what it describes as evidence of Iran's deepening military involvement in Yemen's civil war to secure a new worldwide consensus for harsher action against Tehran, part of a plan to isolate its chief adversary in the Middle East.

Iran is "fanning the flames" of conflict, Haley said.

The company, however, was criticized for not paying enough tax after its British revenues quadrupled, to £842 million, over the same period.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stood before missile remnants that she claimed were covered in Iranian "fingerprints" on Thursday while laying out what she called "irrefutable evidence" that Tehran has violated its worldwide obligations by militarily supporting rebels in Yemen. "In its strongest language yet, the secretary general's report shows violation after violation of weapons transfers and ballistic missile activity".

France reacted cautiously on Friday to USA evidence which allegedly proved Iran supplied weapons to Houthi militia in Yemen, saying it was still studying information at its disposal and the United Nations had yet to draw any conclusions.

"Our new strategy was prompted by the undeniable fact that the Iranian regime's behavior is growing worse".

Trump has called the agreement a bad deal, and the U.S. has focused on its time limits and a provision in the security council resolution that calls on Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

Successive U.S. administrations have warned of Irans malign influence in the Middle East, but lying in a hangar at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling here is concrete proof that the Iranian regime is exporting arms to sow instability and promote violence throughout the region. It is not a coincidence that the USA ambassador held her today's press conference two days after her claim in her interview with CNN, claiming that the common fight against Iran is much more important for the American regional allies than the plights of the Palestinians and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "We haven't seen this in the hands of anyone else except Iran and the Houthis".

The war took another chaotic turn this month with the breakdown of the wartime alliance between the Houthis and Ali Abdullah Saleh, a former president who retained significant influence in the country.

"We believe the Houthis will never come to peace voluntarily", Abdulmalik al-Mekhlafi, the foreign minister of Yemen's Saudi-backed government, said in an interview last week. "They have not given it to anybody else", Seal said. Iran is operating through and supplying the Houthis in Yemen, officials said.
