IBTimes: Iran Warns Saudi-Led Coalition Against Interfering With Yemen Aid Ship As Ceasefire Continues

An Iranian military official warned the Saudi-led coalition Tuesday that any attempts to block an Iranian cargo ship bound for Yemen with humanitarian aid will “spark a fire.” The comments come amid concerns from the United States and Saudi Arabia that the ship might be used to supply weapons to the Houthi rebels during the temporary ceasefire.

"I bluntly declare that the self-restraint of Islamic Republic of Iran is not limitless," General Masoud Jazayeri told Iran's Arabic-language Al-Alam state TV late Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. "Both Saudi Arabia and its novice rulers, as well as the Americans and others, should be mindful that if they cause trouble for the Islamic Republic with regard to sending humanitarian aid to regional countries, it will spark a fire, the putting out of which would definitely be out of their hands."
