  • Yemeni PM says row over Socotra resolved

Riyadh accuses its regional rival Tehran of supplying the Huthis with ballistic missiles, a charge Iran denies.

He said the Huthis had fired 138 ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabia since the rebels started using them to target the powerful kingdom.

"This hostile action by the Houthi militia proves the Iranian regime's continued involvement in supporting the armed group in clear and explicit defiance of the United Nations resolutions with the aim of threatening the security of Saudi Arabia, the region and the world".

Zayani added that the commitment by the Gulf countries to resolve the Yemeni crisis has received support from countries in the region and across the world.

The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has transferred Yemeni girl Alaa Osama Abdel Fattah Mohammed from Taiz to Jeddah for treatment after she sustained injuries in Houthi attack.

"Yes, Yemenis are poor but they fight for their sovereignty,"The UAE foreign ministry, in a statement on Socotra, said it backed Yemen´s legitimate government and sought "to establish peace and stability and to support developmental projects for the island´s residents".

The GCC will also be holding an important meeting of its Financial and Economic Cooperation Committee in Kuwait, where Iran is also likely to be a subject of discussion.
