Although statements by the Houthis perceived in the West with skepticism, “the United States and Saudi Arabia have obtained this information from sources, which informed the Houthis,” Saudi Arabia in this regard has stepped up security measures.
However, the publication explains the possibility of information leakage is the fact that the leadership of the Houthis had a disagreement about how seriously you should rely on Iran.
The representative of the Houthis, Mohamed Abdul Salam, has denied the reports that any warning foreign diplomats about potential Iranian attacks spread.
However, The Wall Street Journal admits that “the United States and Saudi Arabia have not yet presented convincing evidence of Iranian involvement in the attacks” on September 14.
