A former Yemeni ambassador to Syria, Abdul-Wahab Tawaf, has revealed that Syria served as a passage of Iran's plots against Yemen.
He added that the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh played roles in encouraging Iranian expansion in Yemen.
In an interview with Al-Musaqela Newspaper, he stressed that the Iranian regime used to mobilize Yemenis through Syria.
Tawaf reiterated that Iranian leaders used to adopt proxy groups in Arab states to annoy western countries and have bargaining cards.
"The former president dealt with al-Qaeda and Iran a files as a source to gain financial and political support from the Gulf States and international community" he added.
Meanwhile, Iranian and Yemeni media sources claimed that the Turkish government asked Yemen to set up a military base for training Syrian rebels during the visit of the Turkish Foreign Affairs Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to Yemen last week , but the Yemeni government strongly denied the claims.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Free Army has accused the Yemeni Shiite Houthi group of sending its members to fight them in support of the Syrian regime.
The spokesman of the Syrian National Coalition, Wael Hafiz, said the Houthi Group was among other foreign groups which have sent their fighters to kill the Syrian people, urging the Houthi fighters to leave Syria.
Yemeni protesters repeatedly demanded the authorities to expel the Syrian Ambassador to Yemen after the escalation of violence against the Syrian people by the regime.
