Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, will display components of a short-range ballistic missile the Houthi rebels fired into Saudi Arabia at the Defence Intelligence Agency headquarters at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, the officials told NBC news.

Haley has called on the UN Security Council to take a tougher stance toward Iran, accusing Tehran of making illegal arms deals in Yemen, Lebanon and Syria.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Thursday will present evidence that Iran has "deliberately violated" its worldwide obligations, the Pentagon said.

A confidential report to the council says United Nations officials had examined debris from missiles fired at Saudi Arabia which pointed to a "common origin" but there was no firm conclusions as to whether they came from an Iranian supplier.

On Thursday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley will present "irrefutable evidence" showing how Iran has intentionally violented the nuclear agreement it signed with the world powers in 2015.

A U.S. official told CNN that some of the evidence will include components of two Qiam-1 liquid-fueled ballistic missiles which were recovered after Houthi rebels fired missiles into Saudi Arabia in November and July.

"There's been markings that indicate that it was Iranian origin", Lt. Gen. Harrigian, the commander of US Air Forces Central Command, told journalists at a news conference in Dubai ahead of the Dubai Air Show last month.

Iran denies it has armed the Houthis and has dispatched its top diplomat to Europe to get Europeans to side with them over the US.

The US provides aerial refueling support to aircraft from the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis in Yemen.
