star this property answer text <p>The UK is aware of reports that Iran has provided the Houthis with ballistic missiles. These reports are deeply concerning, and it is essential that the UN investigates them fully. The UK strongly condemns Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, including the ballistic missile attempt of 4 November. Such attacks prolong the conflict in Yemen, fuel regional tensions and undermine UN efforts to reach a political solution.</p><p>The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and associated entities are known to be involved in multiple regional conflicts, including operating through proxies. The Government is clear that Iran should cease disruptive involvement in regional conflicts, and should instead look to play a constructive role in regional stability.​</p> more like this
