Yemeni Minister Claims Iranian Military Advisor Was Killed In Saudi Airstrike

File image.

On August 21, Muammar al-Iryani, Minister of Media in the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, claimed that an Iranian military advisor who was supporting the Houthis (Ansar Allah) was killed in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib.

According to al-Iryani, the advisor, allegedly called “Heydar Sirjan,” was killed along with nine other people, including two Colonels of the Houthis “Musa al-Qahazi” and “Ahmed al-Sahari,” when a warplane of the Saudi-led coalition bombed their position in the district of Sirwah.

Sirjan was allegedly training the Houthis’ infantry on mountain warfare and preparing tactical combat plans for the group. He served on the frontlines of the western Yemeni coast until June 5.

The advisor was moved to Ma’rib frontlines, where the Houthis have been leading a large offensive against Saudi forces, on June 7 to replace Mustafa al-Ghazawi, an alleged Hezbollah advisor who was killed earlier.

“We call on the international community, the United Nations and the permanent members of the Security Council to issue firm stances regarding Iran’s blatant interference in Yemeni affairs,” al-Iryani wrote on Twitter.

The Yemeni minister did not provide any evidence to back his claims, which may be nothing more than a propaganda stunt.

While Iran is known to be the main ally of the Houthis, it continues to deny any direct involvement in the conflict. Tehran usually respond to any attack on its forces inside or outside of its territory.

If the information revealed by al-Iryani are true, Iran will most certainly respond to the death of Sirjan either directly or through the Houthis.

iran has 0 military advisors in yemen so they can blabber nonsense as much as they want they pretty much just damage themselves by lying

Brokenspine66

The same goes for the fabricated propaganda narrative that Iran supplies them with weapons, they are under siege + blockade from day one, no need to supply them with that they got plenty from the inept KSA Mercs every other day.

maybe people didnt take notice but yemen proved to be more capable in the field than saudis and it needs no military help maybe economic help but not military so the idea that iran would need to advise yemen is nonsense since they know the land better than iranians and they also dont need any advise on how to fight since they are wrecking all saudi attempts they showed that much

farbat

the idea that saudis could take over yemen was laughable for us from the beginning more laughable was mbs claim that he could take iran its really all just endless idiocy and the saudis are very badly trying to lose it all in this gambles they take part

Critical Thinking 101:

Always ask what representative made the claim and who they represent – in this case a Saudi Quisling.
