Yemen fired Iranian missile at Saudis

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has accused Iran of "direct military aggression" against the kingdom by supplying Huthi rebels with ballistic missiles.

Although Iran's ballistic program is not included under the terms of the nuclear agreement, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), US President Donald Trump has maintained his tough stance on Iran, refusing to re-certify Iran's compliance in October. Washington has also called for the United Nations to hold Tehran accountable for violating two United Nations security Council resolutions.

The president proposed revising the Iran nuclear deal of 2015, saying it "must be preserved", but "complemented with two pillars", which would include "a negotiation on the ballistic activity of Iran, with sanctions if necessary, " and a discussion on "restraining Iranian hegemony in the region".

Iran has vehemently ruled out any negotiation on its missile program which it deems as an inseparable plank of its national security, meant for defense and deterrence.

According to the Saudi diplomat, the Saudi letter shed lights on the attack and uncovered that the ballistic was an Iranian-made missile, which was sent to the Houthi militias in Yemen.

"France is fully aware of our country's firm position that Iran's defence affairs are not negotiable", said Qassemi brushing aside the French leader's request, adding that "other issues will not be allowed to be added to it (the deal)".

Qassemi said the French president and officials know very well that leveling such accusations against Iran is not in conformity with the realities on the ground in the Middle East in recent decades.

"The French government is expected to undertake tangible policies like forcing its regional allies to immediate halt of war and bloodshed, creating truce, and establishing peace and stability in Yemen", Qassemi urged the French.

Al-Jubeir also claimed that al-Qaeda's "virtual board of directors" fled to Iran in 2002 and have been directing terror operations from the country ever since.
