Houthi Leader Says Group Carried Out 14 Operations In Two Weeks

The leader of Yemen’s Houthis (Ansar Allah), Abdul Malik al-Houthi, revealed on April 18 that the group had launched 14 operations in two weeks in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea and even reaching the Indian Ocean in support of the Gaza Strip.

In a televised speech, the leader said that the group used 36 ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones in the recent operations. He also confirmed that eight ships were targeted, which brings the total number of ships targeted by the Houthis to 98.

Al-Houthi said that the United States and the United Kingdom should realize that their aggression on Yemen will not halt the Yemeni operations in support of Gaza.

The leader also assured that there is no danger to the navigation of ships belonging to European countries that are not sailing to Israel and did not take part in the aggression against Yemen.

“There is no danger to maritime traffic related to [ships linked to] European countries that are not heading to Israel,” he added in his speech.

Al-Houthi concluded his speech by advising the U.S. and the UK to withdraw their naval assets, “which impose heavy burdens and losses on them,” and called on the Yemeni people to participate on April 19 in the demonstrations in support of the resilient Palestinian people.

The Houthis, who are backed by Iran, began targeting vessels affiliated with Israel or owned by the U.S. and the United Kingdom in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden last November in response to the Israeli war and siege on Gaza.

Since January, the U.S. and the UK have carried out hundreds of strikes against Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen in an attempt to deter the group. Despite taking some casualties, the group expanded its operations to include the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean.

the great and massive “israel” “retaliation” was sending 3 small drones to fly inside iran lmfao.

us officials confirm israel has attacked a “non-nuclear target” in iran – cnn.

the idf has not even officially claimed an attack inside iran, out of fear for retaliation. 😆😆😆

– you will be surprised (no), but most of all, syrian “revolutionaries” and ukrainian nazis rejoice at israel’s “retaliatory strike” against iran.

you aren’t 100% wrong but you over looking some hard facts. the drones and missiles that houthis use are cheap or as you call it “bottle rockets” but those “bottle rockets” do good amount of damage if you don’t shoot down.

you don’t have to be the smartest person around here but you can see the problem.

the french fremm frigate “alsace” has abandoned the red sea and gulf of aden, according to french sources.

– the commander of the ship stated that the yemeni armed forces “do not hesitate to use drones and ballistic missiles in a very surprising and striking manner.”

– the commander told le figaro: “all combat equipment was used on board the frigate, from the aster missile to machine guns,” noting that the cost of each aster missile is $2 million.
