"Israeli-made weapons found in Saudi Embassy in Yemen"

Iranian report: Houthi rebels who took over the Saudi embassy in Yemen found a weapons cache, with Israeli-made weapons and ammunition

Iranian news agency "FARS" reports that a large stash of weapons was found and seized in the Saudi embassy in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen. According to the report, among the variety of weapons found by the rebels,​​ were Israeli-made weapons, and Israeli ammunition.

According to the report, a large force of Houthi rebels managed to take over the embassy building after some 40 security guards who were in charge of protecting the compound, fled due to the progress of rebel forces. In addition, the rebels reported they found documents at the Saudi embassy, which they claim prove that the US was planning to build a military base on the island of Maun in Saudi Arabia, in the Strait of Bab-el-Mandeb, in order to protect American interests in the Persian Gulf and to ensure the security of Israel.

In recent months, Saudi Arabia, heading a broad Arab coalition, runs the war in Yemen against Houthi rebels supported by Iran.
