Local Editor

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman [MBS] has called on the international community to impose more severe sanctions against Tehran in order to avoid a military confrontation in the region.

"We must achieve this in order to avoid a military conflict, if we fail to do this, we will probably have a war with Iran in 10-15 years," the prince said.

Recently, the crown prince lashed out at Iran, comparing the country's authorities with Hitler and mentioned the possibility of an arms race in the region if Tehran develops its nuclear program.

Commenting on bin Salman's statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi called the Crown Prince a "delusional, naïve person."

Riyadh has been accusing Tehran of illegally supplying weapons, including missiles, to the Ansarullah in Yemen, a claim that has been repeatedly denounced by Iran as baseless.

Earlier in the week, Saudi Air Defense forces intercepted seven missiles over the northeastern part the country's capital city of Riyadh, which had been launched from Yemen.

According to Tasnim news agency, Iran's Revolutionary Guards have denied that Tehran has provided the Houthi movement in Yemen with ballistic missiles.

Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on the impoverished country in a bid to restore to power a Saudi-backed government headed by President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has taken refuge in Saudi after fleeing Yemen.
