Iran’s Meddling in Arab World Provides Grounds for Extremists: UAE Official

NCRI – Iran’s meddling in Arab countries and supporting Houthis militias paves the path and provides adequate grounds for extremist groups, including al-Qaeda and Daesh (ISIS/ISIL), said Anwar Qarqash, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, in his speech at the 34th annual United Nations Human Rights Council session.

Having the Houthis and former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Salah set the legitimate government of this country aside has led to human rights violations against the Yemeni people, including the arrest, torture and murder of thousands of people, and preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid to needy people, he added.

Arming militia with advanced weapons, including ballistic missiles and drones, is on the rise and Houthi militias have fired thousands of missiles and mortar rounds to Saudi Arabia, Qarqash said.
