List of Iranian Arms and Equipment Supplied to Houthi Militants in Yemen since 2015


This list only includes Iranian-supplied arms and equipment supplied to Houthi militants in Yemen or interdicted on the way to Yemen after the 2015 Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen.

Notes:

- Iran has set up a network of smuggling routes through Oman, the Arabian and Red Sea and Somalia to transport arms and equipment to Houthi militants in Yemen.

- While some of the ships containing Iranian-supplied arms and equipment intended for Houthi militants list Somalia as their ultimate destination, most of the weaponry is delivered by ship-to-ship transfers in the Arabian and Red Sea. Deliveries to Somalia and then onward to Yemen make up the rest of the transfers.

- This list only contains a small fraction of the true numbers of arms and equipment that reached Yemen, and Iranian efforts in arming the Houthis should not be underestimated.

- This list does not include items such as cables or specific components of missiles or equipment.
