Iran may have passed ballistic missiles to Yemen Houthi rebels, United Nations says

Iran's mission to the United Nations said the evidence was "fabricated" to serve a USA agenda. The United States and our partners went to great lengths to support the U.N. investigations into Iranian violations by declassifying evidence, so that the world could better be informed of the extent of Iran's maligned activities. Haley displayed the missile and its resemblance to the Iranian Qiam 1 missile as "indisputable" evidence that Iran was in violation of U.N. Security Council 2231, which prohibited Iran from exporting missiles and was adopted in support of the 2015 nuclear deal that Trump has since decertified.

Katie Wheelbarger, principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for global security affairs, acknowledged that there could be implications of such an accumulation of evidence against Iran, to include sanctions. And on the day that Haley was drawing attention to her warehouse full of arms that, in her words, "include parts made in Iran, some by Iran's government-run defense industry" came reports of how many USA - and Saudi-supplied arms wound up in the hands of the Islamic State (ISIS).

Israel's ambassador to the United Nations said Haley's presentation was further indication of a need to contain Iran's missile program, which Jerusalem has long argued is a lacuna in the nuclear deal.

The Pentagon cited corporate logos of Iranian defense firms on jet vanes that help steer the missile's engine and on the circuit board helping drive its guidance system.

Haley will discuss what the mission called Iran's "ongoing destabilizing activities in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world".

The officials said the materiel was handed over by the governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and that there was no doubt about its provenance, even though in some cases USA officials did not have specific information on where the materiel was recovered.

Trump reportedly tells CDC: You can't use these 7 words
According to CNN , "Alternative word choices reportedly were presented in some cases". President Trump's administration has created a list of no-nos for the CDC.

"These hyperboles" serve the USA agenda in the Middle East including the administration's "unbridled support for the Israeli regime", said the spokesman. The only known short-range ballistic missiles that don't have those fins are Iran's Qiam missiles, Haley said.

"When I was based at the United Nations, I saw this show and what it begat.", Zarif tweeted, along with side-by-side images of Haley and Powell delivering their respective presentations. Influential Iranian cleric Mehdi Tayeb said this has been carried out in stages by the IRGC with the support of the navy.

The United States on Thursday presented for the first time pieces of what it said were Iranian weapons supplied to the Houthis, describing it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating U.N. resolutions. "The U.S. wants Iran to act as a responsible nation and enhance security and stability in a region that has suffered from Tehran's efforts to undermine worldwide order by instigating violence and political chaos".

Smoke billows behind a building in the Yemeni capital Sana'a on December 2, 2017, during clashes between supporters of ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Houthis. At least 14,000 people have been killed or wounded since the Saudi-led offensive against the Houthis in neighboring Yemen began in March 2015. Without saying exactly what the administration is seeking, she vowed that "you will see us build a coalition to really push back against Iran and what they're doing".

The report from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, obtained by AFP, said officials were still analysing the information.
