Turkey could provide logistical support to Saudi-led operation in Yemen

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country could provide logistical support to the Saudi Arabia-led operation in Yemen.

Separately, Erdogan has lashed out at Iran, accusing it of trying to "dominate the region."

Erdogan told France 24 television in an interview Thursday that Turkey was providing the Saudi-led mission with "our political support and if needed, we could provide ... logistical support."

However, he ruled out Turkish military involvement "for now."

In comments carried by the state-run Anadolu Agency on Friday, Erdogan accused Iran of testing the limits of the region's "tolerance."

Saudi Arabia is leading a regional coalition in a campaign against Shiite rebels who have taken over much of Yemen. The campaign turned Yemen into a new front in the conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
