What next for Britain in Yemen?

1396/5/12 | 08:21
Yesterday claim emerged from Reuters that Iran is using Kuwaiti waters as a route through which to smuggle arms to Yemen, That didn’t sit particularly well with Kuwait, who was quick to issue a statement denying the claim today.   The allegations were that Iran was smuggling weapons into Kuwaiti waters and then just sticking them on random smaller boats, figuring those boats wouldn’t get searched, mostly because Kuwait is literally nowhere near Yemen.
