Iran's President Rouhani said on Wednesday that Yemen’s missile attack targeting Riyadh on Saturday was "a reaction to Saudi aggression."
"How should the Yemeni people react to bombardment of their country. So they are not allowed to use their own weapons? You stop the bombardment first and see if the Yemenis would not do the same," Rouhani was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.
A day earlier, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman described Iran’s supply of rockets to the Houthis as “direct military aggression” that could be an act of war.
Saudi air defenses intercepted the ballistic missile heading toward Riyadh. It was brought down near Riyadh airport without causing casualties.
