The "Eekad" platform confirmed that its investigation of the contents of the publication confirmed that Al-Houthi used Iranian-made missiles in his bombing of Aden airport and the attempted assassination of the Riyadh Agreement government on the 30th of last December.

The platform, a media group that checks facts published through the media and social media, and uses advanced technologies in search and investigation, identifies itself as a "platform for spreading facts and monitoring fake news". 

Today, it published its evidence-backed investigation and an explanation of the verification mechanism on its pages on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.

Eekad collected all the news, videos and pictures published about the crime, and analyzed it using the laws of light and movement and the contents of images and videos about areas and landmarks, using Google Maps, starting from the shadow of individuals at Aden airport to the shadows and angle of fall of the missiles, and the contents of the videos in other areas, to the information on the type, strength and range of the missiles used.

The organization presented via video its method of research and investigation, which led to confirming that the Iranian arm was the one that fired its four missiles from Dhamar and Taiz, one of which fell after it was launched in Taiz, while the three hit Aden airport.

Eekad's investigations, by analyzing the clips, proved that Al-Houthi fired two missiles from the vicinity of Al-Jund airport in the city, and they tracked their movement towards Aden, as it was proven through the analysis of shadows and slopes that the clips were filmed at noon that day.

According to the measurement of the distance from Taiz airport to Aden airport, the investigations said that it was a type "Badr F" owned by the Houthis.

As for the missiles launched from Dhamar, they covered a distance of 200 km. They were of the type of Qaher 1 and Qaher 2 missiles.
