Top Ansarullah official: US, British vessels ‘legitimate targets’ for Yemeni forces

Hours after the United States and Britain launched a fresh series of military strikes in Yemen, a senior member of the Ansarullah resistance movement said that all US and British vessels have now become “legitimate targets.”

Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, a member of Ansarullah’s political bureau, told Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network that Yemeni Armed Forces will continue to strike Israeli-owned ships and vessels heading towards ports in the occupied territories as long as the Israeli onslaught on Gaza continues.

He underscored that “all American and British vessels have become legitimate targets for the Yemeni Armed Forces in response to their direct and declared aggression against the Republic of Yemen.”

The high-ranking Ansarullah official went on to say that Yemeni forces are yearning for an outright confrontation with American troops, stating that further deployment of US and British soldiers to Yemen will expand the scope of targets that Yemenis can go for.
