Houthis using missiles 'supplied by N Korea': Report claims
Missiles that were launched into Saudi Arabia from Yemen in June are believed to be supplied by North Korea
Missiles launched into Saudi Arabia from Yemen in June, are believed to have been supplied by North Korea, according to South Korean intelligence, Washington-based news website UPI reported on Monday.
South Korean television network SBS reported that the missiles used in the attack against Saudi Arabia were identified as being the same as the Scub-C, or Hwasong-6 missiles that have been known to have been used in past North Korea military parades.
It was also reported that Saudi Arabia was able to shoot down approximately 40 percent of the 20 Scud missiles that Houthi rebels fired.
Saudi government believed that the rebels had obtained the missiles from Iran despite heavy U.S. and U.N. sanctions against Pyongyang to trade North Korea-made weapons in the Middle East.
An unidentified defector and former North Korean official told UPI that North Korea has sold missiles to Yemen and dispatched missile engineers to the country since the 1990s.
South Korean press also claims that North Korea has been linked to ISIS as a weapons supplier.
