The Houthis have promised to respond to the US and British operation in Yemen.

The United States and Great Britain will regret that they launched an operation against Yemen,  Khuzam al-Assad, a member of the Politburo of the Ansar Allah movement, wrote on the social network X.

“Our armed forces are well prepared, and the aggressors will regret their aggression against the Yemeni people,” the publication said.

Al-Assad stressed that the Houthis will determine the theater and direction of military operations and the rules of engagement.

In addition, according to one of the leaders of the movement, the Red and Arabian Seas will remain closed to the passage of ships associated with Israel until the cessation of hostilities in the Gaza Strip and the lifting of the blockade.

“Through these hostile and ill-conceived operations, Washington and London are trying to divert attention from the crimes taking place <…>. We will continue to defend our principled position on the key issue for us – Palestine, and neither America nor Great Britain will be able to dissuade us from supporting our people in the Gaza Strip,” al-Assad wrote.

On Friday night, the US and UK carried out 23 airstrikes on targets in four Yemeni provinces, including the capital Sanaa, Hodeidah, Taiz and Saada.
