'US desperately tries to demonize Iran'
An analyst says Yemen is run by America's CIA and Saudi Arabia and implicating Iran in smuggling weapons while drones bomb Yemenis is just demonization and threat.
In the background of this the Yemeni government has asked the United Nations to probe a ship it claims contained Iran-made weapons thereby accusing Iran of smuggling arms into Yemen. The Yemeni government in it's United Nations application could confirm the weapons were Iranian. Iran has denied that it is meddling in Yemen's domestic affairs. Meanwhile the US has intensified drone strikes in Yemen sparking fear among the Yemeni residents. The Yemeni government has approved these drone attacks.
Press TV has interviewed Saab Shaath, author and Middle East expert, Belfast about this issue.
