The United States is reportedly set to unveil what it says is evidence of Iran giving missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

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.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will present what she says is "irrefutable evidence" that Iran has violated its worldwide obligations at a press conference on December 14, the U.S. mission at the UN said.

U.S. military officials have previously said that Iran has supplied missiles to Houthi rebels including a missile that was sacked into Saudi Arabia that targeted the capital Riyadh in November.

A USA 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. France's president Emmanuel Macron also described the missile as "obviously" Iranian.

AP and AFP said they obtained copies of a confidential report on the investigation provided by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to the UN Security Council.

Officials travelled to Saudi Arabia to examine the debris of missiles fired on November 4 and on July 22. Iran has denied supplying the Houthis with missiles. Saudi Arabia said it held Iran responsible, with Iran calling the claim "malicious".

The official added that evidence presented of other Iranian support for the Houthis will also include an Iranian-made drone that was recovered by Yemeni-tribal fighters allied with the Saudi-led coalition, an Iranian made anti-tank weapon, and military equipment that was bound for the Houthis but intercepted by forces from the UAE.
