In a statement released, Iran's United Nations mission categorically dismissed Haley's claim as "unfounded" and said, "This purported evidence.is as much fabricated as the one presented on some other occasions earlier".

In a statement issued on Thursday, Iran's Ambassador to the United Nations Gholam Ali Khoshroo also rejected Haley's claim as "baseless" and said the accusations are aimed at covering up the Saudi war crimes in Yemen with the USA complicity.

"Unfortunately, the massacre of Yemeni people in the last three years has been exclusively done by American and Western weapons and the broad supports of the illegitimate regime of Israel", articulated Mr. Amir-Abdollahian.

Haley's briefing included physical evidence that Iran is providing ballistic missiles to the Houthis, Mattis said.

"While #Iran has been calling for ceasefire, aid and dialogue in #Yemen from day 1, USA has sold weapons enabling its allies to kill civilians and impose starvation", Zarif tweeted.

"No amount of alternative facts or alternative evidence covers up U.S. complicity in war crimes", he added in his tweet. "What we are doing in that region", he added, "is standing by allies and partners, and we're on one hand exposing, on the other hand helping them build their own capability to reject Iranian influence".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday dismissed as "baseless" the US allegations that Tehran supplies missiles to Yemeni Shiite Houthis, Press TV reported.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, backed by certain Western countries including the United States, launched a military campaign against Yemen in 2015.

More than 8,750 people have been killed since the coalition launched its intervention, majority civilians, according to the World Health Organisation.

The Saudi-led war, which has been accompanied by a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, has so far killed over 12,000 people and led to a humanitarian crisis as well as a deadly cholera outbreak.

"Iran's United Nations mission rejects as "unfounded" purported evidence presented by US Ambassador Nikki Haley claiming that a missile fired at Saudi Arabia from Yemen last month was supplied by the Islamic Republic".
