To the Trump administration, the recovered missile fragments were incontrovertible proof that Iran was illicitly arming Yemen's Houthi rebels.In a visit to New York, the Iranian diplomat accused U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley Tuesday of displaying fabricated evidence that missiles lobbed by the Houthis at civilian areas in Saudi Arabia originated in Iran. Some of the fragments Haley presented, if authentic, would implicate Iran's military industry more directly, including some with the logos of Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group and Shaheed Hemat Industries Group, Iranian defense entities under U.S. sanctions. Others had what Haley called "Iranian missile fingerprints," such as short-range ballistic missiles that lacked large stabilizer fins – a feature she said only Iran's Qiam missiles have.
