Cut off from Yemen and its allies there by a Saudi-led military campaign, Iran has intensified a media counter-offensive against Riyadh, accusing its regional rival of inflicting catastrophic suffering while presenting itself as a blameless peacemaker.The coalition does appear to have shut down the possibility of Iran sending material help to the Houthis: It has taken control of Yemen's air space and waters and prevented Iranian attempts to ship and fly in aid.Iran denies providing material support to the group."They are trying to turn on its head the narrative that Iran is always the one destabilizing the region," Barnes-Dacey said.For their part, the Saudis have tried to portray their Yemen campaign as lawful, as being undertaken in Yemen's own interests, and as a turning point in what Riyadh sees as unchecked Iranian expansionism in Arab countries.
