Saudi crown prince accuses Iran of 'direct aggression'

Saudi crown prince accuses Iran of 'direct aggression'”

The U.S. State Department said on Tuesday it had urged Saudi Arabia to carry out any prosecution of officials detained in a "fair and transparent" manner.

Saudi Arabia has accused Iran of supplying missiles to Huthi rebels in Yemen.

"We encourage the United Nations and global partners to take necessary action to hold the Iranian regime accountable for these violations".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, speaking by phone with his British counterpart Boris Johnson, said "the allegations by Saudi officials were contrary to reality and risky", according to a foreign ministry spokesman.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman's comments were published after Saudi air defense forces intercepted a ballistic missile that Saudi Arabia said was sacked toward Riyadh on Saturday by the Iran-allied Houthi militia, which controls large parts of neighboring Yemen.

But the sources, speaking on Wednesday, said a number of other individuals suspected of wrongdoing were detained in an expansion of the crackdown, widely seen as an initiative of the powerful heir to the throne, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"I know that this is not the wind that is blowing as the majority voice in the world of today", Mogherini told reporters at the European Union mission in Washington.

And the Saudi state minister told Lebanon it's effectively declared war on the kingdom by not reining in Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants.

The rebels' warned that they considered Saudi and UAE "airports, ports, border crossings and areas of any importance" as legitimate targets.

Rouhani further said that the Yemenis' use of their own weapons is a response to the bombardment of their cities at a large scale.

The Saudi-led coalition said on Tuesday it investigated the intercepted ballistic missile and their experts believe the weapon was an Iranian Qiam - a weapon not present in Yemen before the conflict.

The two are the major powers in a coalition that has been fighting the Huthis since 2015 in support of the internationally recognized government. Houthi rebels have been accused of carrying out the attack.

"It will aggregate the already dire humanitarian situation", said George Khoury, the head of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Yemen.

The United Nations on Tuesday called on the coalition to re-open an aid lifeline into Yemen, saying food and medicine imports were vital for 7 million people facing starvation. You do not allow delivery of medicine, food and United Nations assistance to the Yemenis.
