Iran's Houthis Fire More Missiles at Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia's air defences intercepted two ballistic missiles over the capital Riyadh on Wednesday, state television said, the latest in a series of attacks claimed by rebels in neighbouring Yemen. "We believe the deal does not deal with Iran's ballistic missile program nor does it deal with Iran's support for terrorism".

Energy-rich Saudi Arabia, a fierce regional foe of Iran's, is already seeking U.S. help in starting a nuclear program of its own, giving rise to concerns that it might be trying to compete with Iran's nuclear program and create its own nuclear weapons program.

Recently, a Yemeni commander said entire Saudi Arabia, including its capital, are within the striking range of Yemen's homegrown missiles, warning the Al Saud regime that keeping the massacre of Yemenis would turn its vessels and oil facilities in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait into military targets. "An aggressive Iran was emboldened as a result & its ballistic missile program became both offensive & exportable".

Riyadh, which leads a regional coalition that intervened in Yemen's civil war to fight the Huthis, accuses Iran of supplying the militia with ballistic missiles.

Other Gulf states such as Oman have not officially commented yet on Trump's decision.

Commenting on the US withdrawal from the agreement, he said: "The 2015 deal only tackled Iran's nuclear role".

"We've always said our concern about this agreement in 2015 was that Iran should not take it as carte blanche to go and expand its territorial influence", he said.

'It's about Iran, ' said Dorsey, 'not about finding a solution'.

"All potential violations of global humanitarian law should be thoroughly investigated and those responsible for violations must be held accountable", added the statement.

On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia and its allies, including Yemen's internationally recognised government, praised Trump for pulling out of the nuclear deal, noting that it was necessary to stop Iran's "destabilizing and dangerous" behaviour.

"There is a real risk of escalation, especially between Iran and Israel".

'We are trying to avoid at all costs direct military action with Iran, but Iran's behavior such as this can not continue.

'Whether or not (the Iranians) go for a military programme, you're going to get a nuclear race in the Middle East, ' said Dorsey.
