IRAN SAYS HOUTHIS USE ITS MILITARY KNOW-HOW IN BATTLE AGAINST SAUDI ARABIA

Iran has supplied Ansar Allah (also known as the Houthis) with technical expertise and know-how, a spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi said on September 22. However, the general claimed that Yemeni forces “have learned how to produce missiles, drones and weapons in Yemen on their own” and Iran has no military presence in the region. Shekarchi described what Iran is doing across the region as “spiritual and advisory presence”.

“Countries of the resistance front have armies and forces themselves. We provide them with advisory help. In order to share our experience with the people of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen, our skilled forces go there and assist them, but this is the people and armies of these countries who stand against the enemies in practice,” the general stated.

Apparently, it was Iranian “spiritual” power which helped the Houthis to regularly pound targets inside Saudi Arabia, including the Kingdom’s capital and key oil infrastructure objects, with missiles and drones, despite the years of Saudi-led air bombing campaigns against Houthi forces and the land and maritime blockade of the areas controlled by them.

Unspoken here is that the Greater Israel Project means for Israel's sovereign neighbours to be collapsed into chaos by any means so that the lands can become part of Israel.

This would include Saudi Arabia, which if Yemen were to be absorbed into SA, then Israel is the Greater thereby.

Iran understands all this, of course, and helping their neighbours be more militarily self sufficient than not is the buffer Iran needs to escape the inevitable allegation that Iran is fomenting attacks against Israel.

As an aside i don't believe Israel wanted the peace deals with Bahrain and the UAE as more will follow if Mr Trump has a second term.
