The Saudis are always trying to point their finger at Iran due to their failure in Yemen, says an analyst.

“They (the Saudi authorities) are trying to hide their failure [and] this quagmire in Yemen by pointing their finger to Iran and trying to divert the situation or the blaming of Saudi Arabia for its war crimes onto Iran,” Hussain al-Mousawy told Press TV on Tuesday.

The Yemeni army has 300 Scud missiles and the UN has no concrete proof that Iran has sent any sort of missiles or weapons to the Ansarullah movement or to the Yemeni army, the political commentator said.

UN experts, who examined the debris from missiles fired from Yemen at Saudi Arabia earlier in the year, have not confirmed that the projectiles were “Iranian-made” as claimed by the Riyadh regime and the US.
