Yemeni security forces in Marib governorate confiscated a shipment of drugs coming from Lebanon, on its way to the Houthi militias in the capital Sanaa, according to the Yemeni Information Ministry.

The Yemeni minister of Information Mouammar al-Aryani said on Thursday on his tweeter account that the seized drug shipment was hidden inside coffee packets.

Following investigation it was revealed that the shipment was on its way to the pro-Iranian militia in Sanaa.

Al-Aryani said that Iran’s support for the Houthis is not limited to weapons and ballistic missiles but it also supply the coup militia with drugs which the Houthis use to brainwash its members and have a control over them to throw them in the battle fronts, in support of the Iranian ambition in the region.
