Iran, Aug. 9, 2018 - The Iranian regime ordered Yemen’s Houthis to attack two Saudi oil tankers about two weeks ago, according to Fars News Agency, a publication close to the IRGC. The Houthis attacked two Saudi oil tankers in the red sea.
According to the news published by Fars, Naser Shabani, deputy operations commander of IRGC’s Sarallah Base, said, “We told the Yemenis to target two Saudi tankers and they did so.”

After realizing the repercussions of these terrorist remarks, Fars News Agency which had published Shabani’s statements on Monday, edited parts of it after a few hours.
On 26th July the Houthis had attacked Saudi tankers in Bab Al-Mandeb Strait leading to a halt of oil transport through this route.
On 14 June, Reuters published a report saying that debris from five missiles fired at Saudi Arabia by Yemen’s Houthi group since July 2017 “share key design features with a known type of missile” manufactured by Iran and some of the components were manufactured in Iran, according to a confidential report to the Security Council by U.N. chief Antonio Guterres.
It is worth mentioning this is the first time an Iranian military commander admits they are ordering the Houthis to attack.
