Iran fuels war in the Gulf through hands of Houthis

Analytical Wing A- A A+

"Iran is extremely interested in escalating tensions in the Gulf. Because all the parties involved are US allies, and they are trying to normalize relations with Israel. The Houthis are protected not only by Iran, but also by Arab countries, and the coalition is headed by Riyadh.

Political expert Sadraddin Soltan told EDNews about the Houthi terrorist organisation's drone attack on the UAE capital Abu Dhabi.

The political analyst also noted that during the preliminary investigation of the incident, it became clear that the drones once appeared in the air, then a large explosion occurred as a result of sudden fire. In addition, the investigation confirmed that the drones seen in the air belonged to the Houthi terrorist group in Yemen. As a result of the accident, 3 people died. According to the report, among the dead were citizens of India and Pakistan working at the gas station.

"There are some interesting moments of the missile strike by the Houthis. The first was Iran's test fire of the "Zofaghar" missile on the Gulf state. The second point was Iran's message to the forces defending Israel and the United States."

The expert also touched upon the possible response of the other side.

"Undoubtedly, the UAE will reconsider its air defence system and become more active in its Iranian-funded attack on Houthis. Actions against other Iranian military facilities may also be launched here.

I want to note that the increase in the UAE's military power will lead to the intensification of Iran's armaments. This will lead to a significant weakening of the Iranian economy."

Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Saree has confirmed the launch of missiles in his comments: "We have successfully completed military operations against the most sensitive and strategic points of the Emirate thanks to our ballistic missile strikes."

It should be noted that the Houthi terrorist group, which has been waging military conflicts in Yemen, as well as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hashde Shabi in Iraq, are purposefully funded by Iran. Iran has always carried out covert military operations in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and other countries in the region through hands of its financially supported allies. However, the UAE and other Gulf states, which have close ties to the West, have resisted Iran's violent intrusion. It seems that this resistance is also a challenge for a new Gulf War.
