Rouhani: Houthi Attacks 'Warning' to End Yemen War

AP

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told a cabinet meeting that the Houthis attacked the Saudi oil facilities as a "warning" for Riyadh to end its long-running war in Yemen, al-Jazeera reports.

In a video released by state TV, Rouhani did not address US and Saudi allegations that Iran was behind the drone assaults, but blamed the two countries for the conflict in the Arab world's most impoverished country.

"We don't want conflict in the region ... Who started the conflict? Not the Yemenis. It was Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, America, certain European countries and the Zionist regime [Israel] which started the war in this region," Rouhani said in the video.
