Kerry warns Iran: US won’t stand by for interference in Yemen

Secretary of State John Kerry warned Iran over its increased involvement in Yemen's civil war Wednesday, vowing that the US would not "stand by" as the Middle East became destabilized. He said that Tehran was "obviously" supplying the rebels, whose military advances forced Yemen's US- and Saudi-backed president to flee last month.” In response, Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies have been carrying out air strikes against Houthi targets since March 26. "Iran needs to recognize that the United States is not going to stand by while the region is destabilized or while people engage in overt warfare across lines — international boundaries — in other countries," Kerry said.
