Saudi Arabia intercepts Yemen missile, as United Nations says weapons appear Iranian

"The events in Saudi Arabia, the blockade on Qatar, and the Sudanese President's visit to Russian Federation are all a part of the changing equations", he said.

Meanwhile, remnants of four ballistic missiles fired into Saudi Arabia by Houthi rebels this year appear to have been designed and manufactured by Riyadh's regional rival Iran, a confidential report by United Nations sanctions monitors said, bolstering a push by the United States to punish the Tehran government.

Weapons supplies to the Huthis would be in violation of a United Nations arms embargo on Yemen and of a ban on weapons sales by Iran.

The report, dated November 24, added "as yet has no evidence as to the identity of the broker or supplier" of missiles, which were probably shipped to the Yemeni rebels in violation of a United Nations arms embargo from April 2015.

Earlier this month, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused Iran of supplying Houthi rebels with a missile that was sacked into Saudi Arabia in July and called for the United Nations to hold Tehran accountable for violating two UN Security Council resolutions.

The missile attacks, which could further escalate the coalition's military campaign, underscore how the raging Yemen conflict is increasingly spilling across the border, threatening Saudi towns and villages.

In a letter sent to Iran on November 24, the panel requested information on the individuals and companies to which the Sahid Begheri Industrial Group exported the missile component.

Iran has denied supplying the Houthis with weapons, saying the U.S. and Saudi allegations are "baseless and unfounded".

Earlier this week, Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghassemi denied that Iran has "any military connection with Yemen", although Tehran says it supports the Shiite Huthis politically. The infighting threatens to unravel the fragile rebel alliance that controls the capital and has been battling the Saudi-backed government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi in Yemen's war.

The clashes had erupted in the Yemeni capital Sana'a on Wednesday.

But little aid has entered through the port of Hodeida, the main conduit for UN-supervised deliveries of food and medicine.

Coalition air strikes have faced repeated global criticism over civilian casualties.
