The Yemenis have captured an Iranian ship delivering weapons, including “anti-armour weapons,” to the radical Shiite Houthi rebels currently waging war against the government. The crew, consisting of four Iranians and one Indian, have been arrested. The report also adds these details about Iranian involvement:
“Earlier on Monday, the independent paper Al Ahali said that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards train Al Houthi rebels in training camps in neighboring Eritrea. The paper also said that the Iranian revolutionary guards transport the weapons through the Eritrean harbour of Asab, from where it is transported to Yemen’s Midi Harbour.”
Tellingly, the ship was stopped off the Midi Harbour coast. This indicts not only the Iranians, but the Eritreans, who I’ve been warning are a new State Sponsor of Terrorism.
