UN Report: Iran-built weapons found in Yemen

Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres has claimed in a report that Iran-built weapons have been found in Yemen.

Guterres's office reports that his staff examined two container launch units for anti-tank guided missiles recovered by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, according to AFP.

The staff noticed characteristics unique to Iran's manufacturing, as well as evidence recovered that dated between 2016 and 2017.

They also examined a partially disassembled surface-to-air missile, procured by the coalition, which had features identical to those of Iran missiles.

The report also indicated that the investigation into locating the source of these weapons is ongoing.
