Houthis Launch More Ballistic Missiles From Yemen

The Houthis (Ansar) launched two more anti-ship ballistic missiles from Yemen towards the Red Sea, the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) announced on June 4.

In a statement, the command said that there were no injuries or damage reported by U.S., coalition, or commercial ships after the missiles were launched.

“This continued malign and reckless behavior by the Iranian backed Houthis threatens regional stability and endangers the lives of mariners across the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden,” CENTCOM added.

Just a day earlier, the Houthis said they launched a new type of ballistic missile dubbed “Palestine” at the southernmost Israeli city of Eilat. The missile was shot down by the Arrow air defense system over the key Red Sea port city, according to the Israeli military.

The Houthis, who are backed by Iran, have attacked dozens of vessels affiliated with Israel or owned by the U.S. and the United Kingdom in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean since last November in response to the Israeli war and siege on the Palestinian enclave of the Gaza Strip.

In addition, the group launched dozens of drones and missiles at the southernmost Israeli city of Eilat and shot down six American-made combat drones over Yemen and nearby waters.

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 and degrade its offensive capabilities, but to no avail. Recently, the group expanded its operations to include the Mediterranean Sea.

the israelis should have known if the saudi’s with their scorched earth tactics and us jets couldn’t beat the houthis, they’ll have a very hard time beating their enemies as well.
should have made nice and stopped pissing on their neighbors head afterwards. maybe they’ll learn the hard way.
