Yemen will soon join Iran, Iraq and Lebanon in “confront[ing] Iranian policies” that have led to “chaos and terrorism,” and Yemenis living in areas controlled by Iran-backed Houthi militia will not remain silent, Yemen’s Information Minister Moammar al-Eryani said on Monday.

The protests that have erupted in Iran reveal the Iranian regime’s failed attempt to “dominate the region” and are the “inevitable result of the failed policies [it has] pursued,” al-Eryani added.

Anti-government protests erupted in over 93 Iranian cities since the country imposed petrol rationing and raised pump prices by at least 50 percent on Friday.

Thirty-six people have died since protests erupted on Friday, according to Radio Farda.
