A missile attack this week on Riyadh has raised the risk of an escalation in the Yemen war in a region riven with interwoven conflicts, but a direct confrontation between arch-foes Saudi Arabia and Iran still appears unlikely.
The Saudi letter to the UN coincided with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in NY.
The Minister also pointed out that the Cabinet praised the success of the Saudi Royal Air Defense Forces in intercepting and destroying ballistic missiles fired indiscriminately by Houthis from Yemeni territories to target civilian and populated areas in the Kingdom.
One Egyptian was killed and two of his countrymen were wounded by falling shrapnel in Riyadh, authorities said, with residents reporting loud explosions and bright flashes in the sky shortly before midnight.
The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 in a campaign to restore its internationally recognised government after it was driven into exile by Houthi forces. It's mere propaganda to boost the threat of Iran and the Houthis.
"We question why Iran is spending significant revenue in a country with which it has no real historical ties or interests, rather than using its influence to end the conflict for the good of the Yemeni people".

Her case led to an outcry from local Jewish groups when it was not initially treated as a potential case of anti-Semitism. Mr Habib said Ms Knoll was able to escape from the roundup 'thanks to her mother's Brazilian passport'.
Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the Saudi-led coalition for three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
"It is not the first time Saudi Arabia enters into correspondence against Iran in order to cover up its defeats in Yemen, and the global community is well aware of this fact", Khoshrou was quoted as saying by Iran's state TV. "He tried to convince me that Israel should attack Iran".
Mujahideen-e Khalq, which earlier had bases in Iraq since the 1980s, began as a group of Islamist leftists opposed to Iran's late Shah but fell out with Shi'ite Muslim clerics who took power after the 1979 revolution. If not for them, who knows what danger Iran would have been able to inflict on the other people of the Middle East.
Khoshrou called on the Muslin world and the global community to pressure Saudi Arabia to stop war in Yemen.
But an intensification of the Yemen conflict and certainly an escalation to direct conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia could scare off foreign investors.
