Yemen: US insistence on support for Israeli war on Gaza would blow up whole region

Yemen has warned that tensions could escalate in the region as the United States keeps backing Israel in its genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

“The US’s insistence on continuing support for Israel against Gaza could blow up the region,” Mohammed Abdul-Salam, spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement, said in a social media post on Sunday.

The United States has offered untrammeled support for Israel since October 7, when the occupying entity waged the bloody war on Gaza following a historic operation by the Palestinian Hamas resistance group.

Since the start of the offensive, Israel has killed at least 22,835 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 58,416 others.

In solidarity with the Palestinians in besieged Gaza, 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.

In November, they seized the Israel-leased cargo ship Galaxy Leader and turned it into a tourist attraction.

The US has formed a multinational military coalition against Yemeni forces in the Red Sea, through which 12 percent of global trade passes.
