Tehran has denied involvement in the attacks, which have been claimed by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are also threatening further strikes.

The Saudi-led military coalition said Monday that preliminary evidence points toward the weapons used in the attack being Iranian.

Gabbard, a member of the Hawaii National Guard who served in Iraq, has used the "Saudi Arabia's bitch" insult against Trump before, calling him out in November for defending the nation following the slaying of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

She has been an outspoken opponent of U.S. military intervention in conflicts surrounding regime change.
