Saudi Arabia on Friday submitted a request to the UN Security Council demanding to hold Iran responsible for the Houthi missile attacks on its territory.

The statement said gaps in the inspection system in Yemen have enabled Iran to supply the Houthi militia with the missiles.

The Kingdom’s statement noted that the Security Council's inability to act gave the green light to Iran and the Houthis.

The systematic blocking of Houthi missiles by the Saudi air defense proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in arming the militias in qualitative capacities in clear and explicit defiance and violation of UN resolution 2216 and resolution (2231) in order to threaten the security of Saudi Arabia and the wider regional and international security.

The firing of ballistic missiles at populated cities and villages is contrary to international humanitarian law.
