The Houthis warn the US that they are ready to face possible ‘aggression’.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, have said they are “prepared” for possible US “aggression” to prevent insurgent attacks on US ships in the Red Sea and have assured their support for the ‘oppressed’ Palestinian people.

Houthis military spokesman Yehya Sarea alluded to recent statements by Yemeni rebel leader Abdelmalik al Hutí warning the United States that the country will face something more difficult than Afghanistan and Vietnam if it decides to send troops to Yemen .

“The Yemeni Armed Forces are fully prepared militarily “To carry out the instructions of Commander Abdul Malik (…) Al Huti, may God bless him, at all times to fight any aggression against our country and our people,” Sarea said last night.

He stressed that in the event of a US attack, the forces of the Shia movement “will not hesitate to take all necessary measures within the framework of their religious and national duties and responsibilities” and called on “the US enemy to take this into account . Commander Alerts” Maximum number of insurgents.

On the other hand, the Houthi spokesman emphasized that his movement’s position “on the Palestinian issue and (in support of) the oppressed Palestinian people is steadfast, based on principles and will not change regardless of events and challenges.”

Since the outbreak of war in the Palestinian Gaza Strip on October 7, the Houthis have fired intermittent salvos. Missiles and drones against southern Israel and also against ships flying the flag of the Jewish State or owned by Israeli companies in the Red Sea.

Sarea made the warnings hours after thousands of supporters of the Houthi insurgents, who control large parts of northern, central and western Yemen, including Sanaa, will gather in Yemen’s capital against the US and Israel and in support of the Palestinians.

This was the second mass meeting in Sanaa for the same purpose since the US announced the creation of such an organization on the 18th.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army last Saturday announced a “tactical” pause in four-hour military operations in the Rafah refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip, with the aim of facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid.

“There will be a local and temporary tactical cessation of military activities for humanitarian purposes in the Rafah camp, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for supply purposes,” the Israeli military spokesperson reported in Arabic. Avichai Adraee.

In any case, Adraee emphasizes that the Israeli forces are “acting strongly against Hamas and terrorist organizations.” Civil movements in the Khan Yunis area remain prohibited along the Saladin highway axis. “The Saladin axis is a battlefield and it is dangerous to get there,” he warned.

Civilian movements for humanitarian purposes will be allowed through the ring road west of Khan Yunis, as well as the Al Rashid Al Baher and Al Shuhadaa roads leading to Deir al Balaá.

Israeli military authorities had already ordered residents of the town of Khan Younis to advance south toward Rafah, where they would be safe from Israeli military operations. There, thousands of displaced people survive in tents and makeshift shelters.
