Leaders of Palestinian, Yemeni resistance met to coordinate anti-Israel attacks: Report

The leaders of Palestinian resistance groups and Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement have reportedly held a meeting to coordinate retaliatory attacks against the Israeli regime as the occupying entity presses ahead with its months-long aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip.

AFP quoted unnamed Palestinian sources as saying on Friday that the “important” meeting was held last week to discuss “mechanisms for coordinating resistance actions” against Israel.

“An important meeting was held last week in which senior leaders from the Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine participated with the Yemeni Ansarullah movement to discuss coordination mechanisms between these factions regarding resistance actions in the next stage,” the news agency said.

The Yemeni resistance movement, the report said, vowed to keep up its retaliatory attacks on the Israeli-owned and -bound vessels in the Red Sea in support of Palestinians in Gaza.

“The Ansarullah movement confirmed during the meeting that it will continue its operations in the Red Sea against ships heading to the enemy (Israel) to support the Palestinian resistance,” one of the unknown sources was quoted as saying.

“The meeting also discussed the complementary role of Ansarullah with the Palestinian factions, given the possibility of Israel invading Rafah.”

The news agency did not specify the location of the meeting in addition to the names of the leaders of the Palestinian resistance groups and the Houthi Ansarullah participating in it.

Ansarullah leader Abdul Malik al-Houthi said in a televised speech on Thursday that the Yemeni armed forces would continue their retaliatory operations against Israeli-affiliated commercial vessels, preventing the passage of the ships even through the Indian Ocean and through the Cape of Good Hope.
