  •  Yemen Ansarullah: Iran is out of oil pipeline attack in Saudi Arabia

Chairman of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee said that Tuesday's attack on the oil pipeline in Saudi Arabia did not have a link with Iran.

Iran Press/Middle EastMohammed Ali al-Houthi said that Ansarullah forces have been fighting against the Arab-aggressive coalition led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the US for four years and their war is not on behalf of Iran. 

Talking to BBC News he added: "Iran does not play any role in deciding to Houthi forces attack in Saudi Arabia. We are not Iran's agent and the only thing we want is to prevent violence. If Saudi stops the invasion and siege of the Yemeni people, we will stop our rocket attacks too, we decide on ourselves."

Muhammad Ali al-Houthi said that even a piece of bread could not cross the siege of the Saudi coalition, responding to question asked if Iran could smuggle rockets to Yemen.

He said the attack on the Saudi Arabian pipeline was carried out with a drone made by Houthi forces in Yemen as a response to crimes committed by Saudi Arabia and its allies during more than four years of war in support of the government.

Houthi forces announced on Tuesday that they were attacking Saudi oil facilities using seven drones. The Saudi Ministry of Energy also confirmed the attack on the oil pipeline.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the former Saudi-sponsored government back to power. 208/113
