The United Nations on Monday accused Iran of repeating violating international law by sending weapons to militias in the Middle East.

The Under- Secretary-General of the United Nations for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman said that Iran violated international law by sending weapons to militias in Iraq.

The report pointed to shipment of weapons shipment that was seized by the US Navy in the Gulf of Oman.

Also, according to a special report submitted by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations to the UN Security Council on Monday, affirmed that Iran is violating the agreement reached with world powers on its nuclear development program a year ago.

The French and US representatives said that Iran conducted its fourth ballistic missile test since signing the nuclear agreement with the United States and five other world powers last year.

The report mentioned an intercepted Iranian arms shipment to rebels in Yemen and a violation of travel restrictions on Iranians such as the head of its al-Quds Force, who was recently seen in Iraq.
