Alsahwa Net- The United States of America said on Wednesday that the Iranian official who arrived recently Sana’a is a member of the Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and has ties to the Lebanese Hezbollah.
“The Iranian regime smuggled Hassn Irlou, an IRGC member tied to Lebanese Hizballah, into Yemen under the guise of “Ambassador” to the Houthi militia,” Morgan Ortagus, Spokesperson of the US Department of State wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
“Iran's intent to use the Houthis to expand its malign influence is clear. The Yemeni people should say no to Irlou and Iran,” she said.
The government of Yemen condemned this week Iran’s constant acts on supporting terror groups and smuggling of weapons and individuals to the Houthis.
It sent a letter to the United Nations (UN) Security Council on the smuggling of Iran’s official to Sana’a and appointing him as an ambassador to the Houthis which blatantly violates the international law including the UNSC resolution no. 2216.
