Baghdad Post, 4 December 2017 - Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) sent a delegation to Moscow to seek Russian support for its allied Houthi Militias in the ongoing fighting in Yemen, the Baghdad Post reported Sunday.

 

This comes after the Shia militias fled their positions in most of the Yemeni provinces amid a popular uprising against them in Sana'a.

 

The Russian response was shocking to IRGC commanders as the request was rejected.
