UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced on Thursday that the United States possessed “concrete evidence” that Iran supplied missiles to Yemen’s Houthi rebels, which the terrorists then fired at a civilian airport in Saudi Arabia.

“In this warehouse is concrete evidence of illegal Iranian weapons proliferation, gathered from direct military attacks on our partners in the region,” Haley said, while standing in front of a hollowed metal shell, the remnants of an Iranian missile.

“These are the recovered pieces of a missile fired by Houthi militants from Yemen into Saudi Arabia. The missile’s intended target was a civilian airport in Riyadh, through which tens of thousands of passengers travel each day,” she explained.

The ambassador compared the strike to an attack on Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C. or JFK Airport in New York City.

Haley said that markings on the missile proved it had originated in Iran, and she called on the international community to act against Tehran’s terroristic aggression.
