Everyone may wonder how does Iran smuggle ballistic missiles and lighter weapons and ammunition to the radical militias of the Houthis in Yemen.
The pro-government Dep. Governor of the Red Seaport city of Hodeidah Waleed al-Qudeimi, unraveled the trick to Al-Sharq al-Awsat daily as follows: "Iran takes advantage of the poor scrutiny of vessels sailing off the coast of Hodeida to smuggle ballistic missiles; they de-assemble the missiles and ship them in food and bulk wheat containers, to be re-assembled later when they arrive in mainland Tihama cities, (also) by 75 Iranian experts available there."
The Saudi-led military coalition announced Monday that it is temporarily shutting all of Yemen's ports of entry following the Houthi militias' launch of a ballistic missile that aimed at but was intercepted near the capital Riyadh on Saturday.
