This admission comes a week after the Houthis launched an unprecedented offensive against airports, oil facilities, and civilian locations. All suicide drones and ballistic missiles were intercepted except for one which hit the Ras Tanura oil refinery causing minimal structural damage. It marks a development, under Biden, in Iran’s extraterritorial military operations in Arab countries. This admission also supports the findings that the 2019 AlBuqaiq attack on a Saudi Arabian refinery was launched by Iranian forces from Iraq/Iran.

Tehran supports attacks on Saudi Arabia by the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ overseas Quds Force has admitted.

General Ismail Qaani, speaking at a conference, said Houthis had launched “18 operations in less than 10 days” targeting KSA

Responsible for extraterritorial operations, the Quds Force supports non-state actors in many countries, including Lebanese Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the State of Palestine’s Gaza Strip and the West Bank, Yemeni Houthis, and Shia militias in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.
