Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi shrugged off Saudi Arabia's threats against the Islamic Republic, saying that the Riyadh regime is not powerful enough to "live out its dreams" (against Iran).

The independent watchdog said it examined a fiberglass-encased bomb, packed with explosives, and found a type of Chinese-manufactured wire covering used in other Iranian materiel.

"With adventurism and inexperience, the Saudis have helped inflict cholera on millions of Yemeni people and targeted children and civilians in the course of their bombardments", he said.

The missile unit of the Yemeni army announced on Monday that in keeping with the promise of the leader of Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement, the unit had fired seven ballistic missiles at Saudi targets the night before.

Iran has repeatedly denied arming the Huthis in Yemen, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia that the evidence of an arms connection is irrefutable.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called to "fix or nix" the deal, while U.S. President Donald Trump threatens to pull out of the agreement in May.

Saudi Arabia, which has been blamed for most civilian casualties in Yemen, is infamous for what human rights groups call "blackmailing" the United Nations to keep silent on its atrocities in Yemen.

The Iranian spokesman made the remarks in response to a joint statement by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt earlier in the day, in which the two urged Iran to stop sending weapons to the Houthis.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015 to push back the Huthis who captured the capital Sanaa and forced the government into exile.

These attacks prove that Saudi Arabia and the Coalition must continue fighting to restore the legitimate government in Yemen and liberate the capital from the hands of terrorists. They were once strong enough to force the legitimate government to flee, but the Saudi-led Arab coalition has weakened them.

The war has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and displaced over 3 million, according to humanitarian agencies.

Those weapons allegedly include ballistic missile technology used to target Saudi Arabia, which leads a military coalition of Arab nations backed by the US that is stuck in a stalemate war with the Houthis.
