Iran Sending More Fighters to Yemen According to U.S. Intelligence

Thursday, May 28, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Iran has dispatched additional paramilitary forces to Yemen to aid pro-Tehran rebels seeking to take control of the strategic southern Arabian state, the Washington Free Beacon reported citing U.S. intelligence reports.

The Iranian leadership earlier this month ordered militants from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force, along with Lebanese Hezbollah fighters, to Yemen, where Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab states are seeking to defeat an insurgency led by Houthi rebels that currently control large parts of the country.

The influx of Iranian forces was outlined in several classified intelligence reports circulated within government over the past two weeks, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.

A State Department official said the Sunni Arabs in nearby states are opposing the Houthis and seeking to prevent Iran from establishing a foothold on the peninsula. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://freebeacon.com/national-security/u-s-intelligence-iran-sending-more-fighters-to-yemen/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
