A United Nations panel in a new report has concluded that Iran violated a UN arms embargo by directly or indirectly providing missiles and drones to Shi'ite rebels in Yemen, backing up accusations made repeatedly by the United States.
"The panel said it came to the conclusion that Iran had manufactured the weapons the Yemeni rebels fired at Saudi Arabia, which leads an Arab coalition fighting on the side of the government against the rebels in Yemen's civil war.
The panel said it found that design features of the missile debris were "consistent with those of the Iranian-designed and manufactured Qiam-1 missile" and "almost certainly produced by the same manufacturer."
(excerpt) "Moreover, the drones and missiles "were introduced into Yemen after the imposition of the targeted arms embargo" imposed by the UN in 2015, the report says.
"As a result, the panel finds that the Islamic Republic of Iran is in non-compliance with [the embargo] in that it failed to take the necessary measures to prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles to the Huthi-Saleh alliance," the report said."
(excerpt) "Iran backs the Huthis in their three-year civil war against the government, but it has denied supplying the rebels with arms.
The United States has repeatedly charged that Iran is supplying the rebels with ballistic missiles in violation of UN resolutions, and has demanded that the UN Security Council take action to enforce the embargo and penalize Iran."
Oh my. This surely will occasion the writing of a most pointed letter of protest.
Will they use bold font or save that for the next time?
It’s not what the UN may do, but what Trump can do now as a result of the findings
Obama/Kerry gave Iran a note saying it’s OK
Funny what the threat of withholding of a little cash to the UN can stir up?
“Its not what the UN may do, but what Trump can do now as a result of the findings”

Uh..... TRUMP SAID SHATHOLE!!!!! LOOK OVER THERE!!!!!!
And the UN will do nothing about it while continuing to bite the American hand that feeds it and gives it shelter.
Who cares? The US just wrapped up a massive program to give billions of dollars of advanced weapons to al-Qadea in Syria. The US government gave massive amounts of weapons to Muslims in Bosnia, including al-Qaeda, in violation of a UN arms embargo and working in conjunction with Iran.
I don’t give a damn about Yemen. Stay the hell out of this.
Writ in crayon.
Gee, everyone who is surprised that Iran is a violator of International Law hold up your hand!!! Why did Trump certify the obammy deal??
Can Trump renege on certifying the deal if new information (like this) comes out and is confirmed, without having to wait for months?
If not, that provision in itself is a sign of a bad deal, and should be unilaterally tossed out
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
As though the "rebels" care. These wouldn't be Islamic rebels would they? Terrorists?
