Iran has denied claims by a senior US naval official that the country has been sending arms and missiles to Yemen's Ansarullah Movement.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Sunday rejected the allegations made by the head of US Naval Forces Central Command Vice Admiral Kevin Donegan.

Donegan recently claimed that the US and partner nations had intercepted five shipments of weapon headed from Iran towards Yemen.

Qassemi stressed that these false claims are being made as the West continues to sell deadly arms to Saudi Arabia.

“Everyday, an uncountable number of lethal weapons, bombs and US missiles are dropped by Saudi Arabia on the defenseless and oppressed civilians in schools, hospitals, jails and homes,” noted Qassemi.
He went on to stress that these actions are nothing short of “war crimes.”

Qassemi also criticized Saudi Arabia's reelection as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council, describing it as a catastrophe and a bitter tragedy.

He stressed that Riyadh’s reelection in the council is even more “regrettable” than the Saudis' atrocities upon its impoverished neighbor.

Saudi Arabia has been launching airstrikes in Yemen since March 2015. The war was launched in an unsuccessful attempt to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has resigned as Yemen’s president. The UN puts the death toll from the military aggression at over 10,000.
