Saudi-led friendly fire kills 6 Yemen troops: Military source

Russia vetoes anti-Iran UN Security Council resolution

“Terrorism Crisis in Bab el-Mandeb Imminent If Yemen War Not Stopped”

The unanimous vote followed a Russian veto of a UK-drafted text that contained language of Iranian "non-compliance" with the United Nations sanctions regime against individuals and entities deemed to be engaging in or providing support for acts that threaten the peace, security or stability of Yemen.

Haley held the Security Council accountable for the defeat, "The Security Council failed to adopt a resolution that would have called out Iran for its actions".

The statement by Western powers condemning Iran on February 27 shows the United States has galvanized the support of major European allies, all of whom signed Iran's 2015 nuclear deal along with Russian Federation and China, for taking action to deter Iran's ballistic-missile activities. "The Panel of Experts' final report outlined Iran's failure to prevent the transfer of Iranian arms and related material, including ballistic missiles, military equipment, and unmanned aerial vehicle technology, to Houthi militias in Yemen".

The experts examined missile remnants fired into Saudi Arabia by the Houthis a year ago and said many "are consistent with those of the Iranian designed and manufactured Qiam-1 missile".

Iran claimed that the USA and Britain were simply scapegoating them for the carnage in Yemen.

The Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations (YCHO) had helped 959,879 people, and he said that the number of beneficiaries would exceed a million within two days.

The text, strongly supported by the United States, won 11 favorable votes at the 15-member Security Council but was blocked by Russia's veto.

A council resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, the United States, France or Britain to pass.

While the report stated that Tehran had violated the embargo by failing to block arms shipments, the experts were unable to identify the supplier.

Instead, the UNSC unanimously adopted a Russian-proposed resolution that did not mention Iran.

The Saudi-led Coalition to support Legitimacy in Yemen called on the United Nations to put Houthi militants, including Head of the Revolutionary Committee Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, in the list of sanctions issued under resolution 2140. Making his statements on Twitter, Gargash reaffirmed the correct decision taken by Saudi Arabia to intervene in Yemen.
