On November 10, a senior U.S. Air Force official in the Middle East told reporters that Iran manufactured the ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Houthi-Saleh forces toward the Saudi capital and remnants of it bore Iranian markings. “What we have seen, clearly from the results of the ballistic missile attacks, that there have been Iranian markings on those missiles, that’s been demonstrated,” said Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, who oversees the Air Force’s Central Command in Qatar. “To me that connects the dots to Iran in terms of who’s providing those missiles and that capability.”
