Arab media: Saudis using Israeli weapons in Yemen

Tehran, Some sources close to Intelligence Committee of the US Congress said that the Saudi-led coalition has used Israeli-made weaponry in the war on Yemen.

The Zionist regime of Israel has equipped Saudi forces with prohibited missiles and Riyadh has used them to bomb provinces that are under control of Houthis, the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity told Khaleej Online.

They added that the Saudis follow numerous goals in using them, among which are testing the missiles, assessing their destructive power, and their influence on human body.

The sources said that the Saudis have lyingly announced that the weapons were US-made to avoid the consequences of the news.

On January 9, Jerusalem Post quoted the Swiss paper Basler Zeitung writing that the Riyadh government expressed interest in purchasing Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system and other Israeli equipment, via a third country, to stop attacks by the Houthis in Yemen.

'Saudi military experts had even examined the Israeli anti-missile system in the United Arab Emirates' capital, Abu Dhabi. Saudi Arabia is said to have wanted to acquire the system in an attempt to stop missile attacks by Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement,' wrote Defense World website on January 9.
