Houthi: Yemen plans more ‘effective’ strikes in solidarity with Gaza

The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement has vowed more “effective” retaliatory strikes in support of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip who are subjected to genocide by Israel and the US.             

In a statement on Thursday, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi stressed that the Gazans are subjected to “systematic and planned” genocide by Israel and the US.

“The genocide is a living witness on the ugliness …of the Zionists”, he said, stressing that Israel poses a “threat to the whole of humanity.”

He added that the massacres also “reveal the ugliness of the US” and “ring the alarm bell about the danger” America poses to other peoples.

Houthi noted that Yemen has fired 479 missiles and drones since the start of the retaliatory operations that it has been conducting in support of Palestine, including 18 last week.

He described the Yemeni attack that hit Umm al-Rashrash (Eilat) on Sunday as “one of our most important missile operations.” The Ansarullah leader said the missile hit Eilat, and managed to penetrate all the US and the Israeli “monitoring and interception techniques.”

Houthi also noted that last week saw Yemeni attacks on Israeli and US ships in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea as well as the Indian Ocean.

He referred to the decline in the number of Israeli and Israeli-linked ships as well as the US and UK ships in the nearby seas as evidence on the success of the Yemeni attacks.

In solidarity with the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip, the Yemeni armed forces have targeted ships in the Red Sea with owners linked to Israel or those going to and from ports in the occupied territories.

The US and the UK have also been carrying out numerous attacks against Yemen as means of trying to pressure the country into stopping a series of operations that it has been conducting in support of Gazans.

Yemen has been conducting operations against the British and American warships that have been dispatched to the Red Sea to confront the Yemeni strikes.

The port management said the move was the final option after months of losses and inactivity.

Referring to the closure of Eilat and the port’s plan to fire half of its employees, Houthi stated that the retaliatory attacks inflicted heavy economic losses on Israel.

“The enemy’s statements express disappointment and heavy losses,” he said.

“God willing, we have plans of great importance for more effective strikes on the enemy in the future,” Houthi added.

Houthi said Israel has so far failed to achieve the goals of its war on Gaza, despite the heavy bombing of the besieged strip, due to the “steadfastness” of the Palestinian people and resistance fighters.

Israel unleashed its genocidal war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Since the start of the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has killed nearly 32,000 Palestinians and injured more than 74,000 others.

The Tel Aviv regime has also imposed a “complete siege” on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.

The United Nations says children in Gaza have begun dying of hunger amid the risk of a severe famine.
