Aden (Debriefer) - Yemen risks a "grave conspiracy by Tehran's regime and its racialist militias, led by the Lebanese Hezbollah," the Yemeni information minister tweeted late on Tuesday.
"The Iranian regime blatantly uttered its expansionist ambitions, admitted its political and military interferences, and channeled all its resources to support the Houthi group's coup against the State and use it as a tool to settle its regional scores," Moammar al-Eryani added.
"The plot against the Yemeni territory and people aimed to abuse its social texture and demographic structure, to efface its national and Arab identity, and to steal its will and dignity.
"The Iranian regime seeks to transform Yemeni lands into a base to target neighboring countries, spread chaos and terrorism, harm the regional security and stability, and threaten the international shipping routes," the minister said.
The Yemeni government always accuses Tehran of supporting the Houthi group with different types of arms, in a bid to impose its influence in the war-plagued country.
The Yemeni capital Sana'a and most the northern and western provinces have been under Houthi control since 21 September 2014, and Saudi Arabia is leading a military coalition since 26 March 2015 in support of forces loyal to President Hadi to retake areas controlled by the Iranian-backed group.
The Houthis often targets vital facilities in Saudi lands with ballistic missiles and bomb-laden drones, which the Yemeni government and Arab coalition say to be Iranian-made, charges denied by Tehran.
