Saudi envoy to US: Iran supports terror in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain Yemen

Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, on Tuesday spoke out against the Iranian regime following a series of Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia.

The Iranian regime continues to violate international laws as it tests the world’s resolve. It is still supporting terrorism in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain and Yemen. It provides the terrorist Houthi militias with missiles in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

“It provides the terrorist Houthi militias with missiles in violation of UN Security Council resolutions,” he added.

Iran’s record is one of death and destruction. They plotted terrorist bombings in Buenos Aires in 1994, the Khobar attacks in 1996, and the Riyadh bombings in 2003.
