Houthis hit the Nazi entity for first time

The Nazi military has failed to intercept a cruise missile fired by the militants at the Nazi occupied port of Eilat Houthi supporters attend a pro-Palestine rally in Sanaa, Yemen, March 8, 2024 ©  AP / Osamah Abdulrahman Yemen’s Houthi militants have struck the Nazi entity with a cruise missile, marking the first time that one of the group’s projectiles has reached the Jewish state. The strike follows repeated efforts by the US and UK to destroy Houthi launch sites. The Nazi Défense Forces (IDF) confirmed on Tuesday evening that it tracked a “suspicious aerial target” that entered Nazi airspace and struck an open area near the Red Sea port city of Eilat.  The Nazi army then confirmed that the target in question was a cruise missile, and that no casualti...

STRATEGIC ESCALATION: YEMEN’S MILITARY OPERATIONS SIGNAL A NEW PHASE IN THE RED SEA

Ansar Allah has made it clear that they don’t plan on abandoning their support for the Palestinian cause in the face of mounting pressure on Yemen. Residents of Yemen’s capital city of Sanaa endured another harrowing night last Saturday as American and British aircraft dropped bombs on an insecticide manufacturer in a dense residential neighborhood. In the wake of the airstrikes, MintPress News reporter Ahmed AbdulKareem went to the Al-Nahda neighborhood in the center of the city, where a fire rising dozens of meters into the air illuminated nearby homes. There, he found a chaotic scene eerily reminiscent of those now regularly seen in Gaza in the wake of Israeli raids. Rubble, broken windows, scattered and burned furniture, and women and children fleeing their homes to no p...

Despite Risks, US Presses to Extend War in Yemen

BY EDWARD HUNT Photograph Source: US Navy – Public Domain With the Biden administration facing a legally binding deadline of March 12 to end its acts of war in Yemen, officials in Congress are preparing to grant the administration the legal authorization to continue waging war in the immediate future. At a February 27 Senate hearing, U.S. lawmakers indicated that they are working on a bill for the authorization of the use of military force, which would provide the Biden administration with the legal authority to continue airstrikes against the Houthis, a militant group in Yemen that has been attacking commercial ships in the Red Sea since the start of Israel’s military offensive in Gaza. “The Constitution requires Congress to authorize acts of war,” Senator Chris...

The US War on Yemen: World Superpower Versus a Starving Nation

By Steven Sahiounie Global Research, The Houthis are fighting in support of Gaza, by attacking Israeli owned and flagged ships that use the Red Sea to navigate toward the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea, bringing ships directly alongside the Yemeni coast. The Saudi-Yemeni war began in March 2016, and the US participated in support of Saudi Arabia, as one of the wealthiest countries on earth bombed and attacked one of the poorest countries on earth. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is refusing to participate in the US coalition to fight Yemen, because of the new foreign policy of the Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, and improved relations with Iran. The Crown Prince, known as MBS, has been involved in a long war with Yemen, and he does not want to invigorate ...

“WE ARE PEACE LOVERS”: MOHAMMED ALI AL-HOUTHI OF ANSAR ALLAH DISCUSSES THE PROSPECTS OF ESCALATION, YEMEN’S BLOCKADE, AND BEYOND

Ansar Allah’s second-in-command, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, joins MintPress in an exclusive interview to discuss tensions with the US and Israel as well as the movements’ goals and contingency plans in case conflict in Yemen escalates into an all-out war. Following Israel’s war and siege against Gaza, which began in earnest on October 7 of last year and has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Palestinians, the Yemeni Army led by Ansar Allah declared a military operation against Israel. Its aim: to compel Tel Aviv to cease its destructive war on Gaza. No stranger to famine, genocide, and the displacement of civilians thanks to a decade-long war waged against its people led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and backed by the United States, Ansar Allah has led ar...

No casualties were reported. According to a Houthi spokesman, the attack was retaliation for the killing of 10 Houthi militants who were strafed by US helicopter gunships while trying to board the Maersk Hangzhou on Sunday.
