At least seven Iranian regime’s military and intelligence experts have been arrested since January in different locations around Yemen, a top Interior Ministry officials told Yemen Post.
Last month, President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi said that the Iranian regime is meddling within the country’s affairs.
Yemeni Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi also in may said the Iranian regime is sending arms to militants in his country.
“We have evidence that some Iranian parties negatively interfere in Yemen’s affairs by sending weapons,” al-Qirbi told the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper.
Yemen had seized an Iranian ship carrying arms bound to militants in Yemen in mid-2013.
