KUWAIT, Kuwait refuted media reports that Iran has been using Kuwaiti waters, to send arms to the Houthis in Yemen.

The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry said in a statement that, the country's waters were under total control of the Kuwaiti navy and coast guard.

There were no reports of suspicious marine movements or activities in Kuwait's waters, the report quoted a ministerial source as saying.

Media reports said Tuesday, that, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, has started using a new route between Kuwait and Iran, across the Gulf, to send arms to the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Before that, Iran shipped arms to the Houthis either directly to Yemen or via Somalia. But the route risked contact with international naval vessels, on patrol in the area.

Yemen's internationally-backed government, allied with Saudi Arabia, has for years been battling Iran-backed Shiite Houthi rebels, for control of the country.

In Mar, 2015, the Saudi-led coalition imposed an air and sea blockade on Yemen, to prevent weapons from reaching the Houthis, who took over the capital Sanaa, and most of northern Yemeni provinces.
