Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says that Israeli and other intelligence agencies have attempted to move ISIL Takfiri terrorists into Yemen.

“The intelligence at hand all indicated that over the past two months, certain intelligence services inside and outside the region, of course with the links they had with the Zionist regime, were seeking to move ISIL forces from Syria, Iraq and some other parts in the region to southern Yemen... and this happened ,” Amir-Abdollahian told Press TV.

Boko Haram and al-Shabab militants were also moved from Nigeria and Somalia, he added. He went on to say that Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, backed by the people and the army, “stormed an assembly of ISIL forces and al-Qaeda-linked militants and achieved a great victory.”

The deputy foreign minister also censured Saudi Arabia and the US for their double standards towards terrorism. The presence of any Iranian forces or military advisers in Yemen was also rejected by the Iranian official.

Amir-Abdollahian went on to call for a return to national dialog and the formation of a broad-based unity government in Yemen. Saudi Arabia started deadly attacks on Yemen on March 26, without a UN mandate, in a bid to restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Hadi, stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by the Ansarullah movement, but the Yemeni parliament did not approve his resignation.

Gradually, as the Yemeni government failed to provide security and properly run the affairs of the Arab country, the Ansarullah fighters started to take control of state matters to contain corruption and terror.

The Ansarullah fighters took control of Sana’a in September 2014.

During the interview, he also said that al-Qaeda-linked terrorists have never attacked Israel's interests anywhere in the world and even ISIL avoided confrontation with Israel during its recent war against the Gaza Strip.

Israel started its latest war on Gaza in early July last year. Over 2,100 people died and some 11,000 others were injured in the Israeli war, which ended on August 26, 2014 with a truce that took effect after indirect negotiations in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
