Iran newly appointed ambassador to Yemen arrives in Sanaa, raises questions about the UN cover for the Houthis

The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Saturday the arrival of the new Iranian ambassador assigned to the Houthi militia in Sana'a, amid many question marks about his arrival mechanism and the facilities granted to transport Iranians to and from Sana'a.

"The Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Yemen, Hassan Irloo, has arrived in Sanaa", said Saeed Khatibzadeh, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran on Saturday. Faris news agency reported.

The Iranian ambassador’s arrival in Sana’a raised a wave of questions about his arrival in Sana’a, in light of the suspicious role of some UN employees and the facilities granted by them to the Houthi militia in addition to the provision of logistical support for the transportation of Iranian experts as well as diplomats.

Khabar Agency sources confirmed that the United Nations was the one who transported the ambassador to Sana'a, especially since Sana'a airport does not receive commercial flights, not to mention that the international support for the militias has become clear.

The sources held the United Nations responsible for providing cover for the Houthi militias, Lebanese and Iranian experts, which would prolong the war, as the militias fail to comply with peace efforts and international resolutions.

Media reports have previously revealed that the United Nations has provided cars belonging to some of its organizations for Houthi leaders to move and hide from coalition air strikes, in addition to the transfer of militia leaders to and from Sanaa airport on their private planes in the biggest scandal of the international organization and its suspicious role that contributed to prolonging the conflict and supporting the Houthi militia.

This came more than a year after the Houthi militia appointed Ibrahim Muhammad Al-Dailami as the extraordinary ambassador to Tehran.
