A new Iranian missile shipment intercepted by the Arab Coalition offshore from Yemen will be revealed today in a press conference by Saudi Arabian officials, with Al Arabiya English presenting exclusive footage and images from the raid and other evidence of Iranian weapons shipped to the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen.

The press conference will launch at 3:30 p.m., Riyadh time (4:30 p.m., Dubai time), today, June 29, 2020.

Al Arabiya English will be publishing exclusive content obtained from the Arab Coalition, including evidence of the arms on board the dhow, which was intercepted in April 2020.

The conference comes following a UN report that found missiles used against the Kingdom were “of Iranian origin,” and at a time when the UN Security Council is considering whether to extend the arms embargo on Iran past October 2020.
