    Deputy Foreign Minister in the Sanaa government, Hussein Al-Ezzi:

    “Our country was subjected to a massive aggressive attack by American & British ships, submarines, and warplanes, and without a doubt, London and Washington will have to prepare to pay a heavy price.”

    “Any Yemeni response to the American aggression on Yemen will be officially announced by the Yemeni Armed Forces. Therefore, we recommend caution in reporting the news."

    Fox News citing an American official:

    The United States and the United Kingdom led these “strikes,” but they would not have been possible without the support of Australia, Bahrain, Canada, and the Netherlands.

    Of course take with caution. But Houthis have hit F-15's and had proof. Maybe it was just an F-15 again

    Does it make a difference , if we know our fate ? Can we change anything ? A blind man sees less than a sighted person , but both have to cross the River of fate , and both can drown ! And Blind-ken is running around , trying to stop the war spreading . And at the same time they are siding with Israel and bombing Yemen ! Spreading the war . What happens , if everybody throws a Rock at the Devil ? The tactics of the Imperialist West are to divide and rule . One victim at a time . And so was the story in Afghanistan , Iraq , Libya , Syria , Palestine and now Yemen ? That is why they don't want the war to spread . Since they know they have no chance then ! They simply do not have the resources to fight across vast spaces in Asia and middle East . Everybody throwing a little Rock at the Devil .

    🇾🇪🇺🇲🇬🇧 The Houthis have said attacks carried out against them have resulted in no real or serious damage.

    The Houthis also said that there is no real coalition in the Red Sea - there is only the United States and Britain.

    Yahya Saree, the military spokesman of Yemen's Army:

    The American-British enemy brutally invaded Yemen with 73 attacks.

    We will not hesitate to target all threat positions.

    This assault led to the martyrdom of 5 people and the injury of 6 others.

    This aggression will not deter us from our position in supporting the Palestinian people against the oppression of the aggressors.

    American and British aggression will not go unanswered and unpunished


    Strike sites

    According to some Yemeni sources, the US and British attacked the cities of Sana'a, Hodeidah, Saada and Dhamar in the early morning.

    ▪Al-Dailami airbase in northern Sanaa

    ▪Around Hodeidah Airport and areas of Zobeid city in this governorate

    ▪Kahle Barracks, located in the east of the city of Saada.

    ▪Abas city airport in Hajjah province

    ▪Taiz Airport and the barracks of the 22nd Brigade of the Yemeni Army in the city of Taazih

    US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, during his recent tour of the Middle East, failed to convince Arab countries to join the coalition against the Houthis , writes the "Semafor" portal.
    The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, which are perceived as "particularly important partners in the fight against the Houthis", were not interested in new military operations, the portal said, adding that neither Egypt nor Qatar wanted to join in order not to be seen as supporters of Israel and its Western allies.

    The most hilarious thing in this whole madness, are the ships broadcasting in the open that they are Chinese or Russian, or that they have nothing to do with the US or Israel to avoid being targeted. Laughing

    Yes, this seems to be another direct attempt to support Israel, this time its shipping.

    Mind you, showing that the US/UK were not toothless tigers may have played a part. Laughing

    US Central Command:

    We hold the Houthis and their Iranian sponsors responsible for attacks on international shipping

    We used more than 100 guided missiles to strike Yemen

    Illegal under international law. Waiting for the EU to declare sanctions against the aggressors........................................................................
    Rolling Eyes

    without the support of Australia, Bahrain, Canada, and the Netherlands.
    Thank you. Now Yemen knows whose ships to attac. thumbsup

    ignored 'final warning'
    Only the Security Council of the UN can give such a warning.
    Easier way: Tell the Zionists to stop their genocide against Palestinians.

    The Israelis have no qualms about using deception and would happily broadcast that they are not what they are... several Israeli hit squads trying to murder people have used New Zealand passports to gain entry to countries their own passports or friendly passports would not give them access to.

    We hold the Houthis and their Iranian sponsors responsible for attacks on international shipping

    I have seen no evidence Iran has anything to do with this, but the US and UK seem determined to get them involved in all this... and the funny thing is that if they get their wish it will make things much much worse for themselves.

    Illegal under international law. Waiting for the EU to declare sanctions against the aggressors..

    Yes, where is this international rules based order they often speak of...

    Thank you. Now Yemen knows whose ships to attac.

    Almost like they have had their fun but don't want to take their punishment on their own... so they are shopping their mates to spread the love...

    FFS! Have Modi phone the s.o.a.b. Sunak!

    You can bet no western media will ask about rules based international order over this... which is what BRICS is all about.

    I was wondering the same. Wheee russian and chinese missiles ?

    US armed both ukraine and Taiwan. Why aren't they returning the favor and arm the houti with antiship missiles ?

    Would be nice to sink at least that UK ship since they are the one to push for the war in ukraine just to pretend to be a huge power.

    It is unlikely that the Russians would just hand over high tech weapons to just anyone because it suits their interests today... that is the sort of thing the Americans did which of course led to the 1990s where Muj fighters had modern Stinger missiles at their disposal because after the Soviets left they didn't hand those missiles back to the CIA...

    The training and systems needed to make such things work would probably make them less optimal, but I am sure if they have enough UK made sea surface drones with nice big bombs on them that they could lend some to different groups to sail out and hit a few targets... they could probably improve the design to make them more effective and less likely to blow up if shot on their way to a target...

    They could probably even just sell to them some old Torpedoes that could be lowered into the water and launched towards targets... those western ships are noisy enough to hunt down in passive mode.

    Even just ballistic rockets like Smerch or Iranian equivalents would be problematic that close to shore for most ships... a simple passive radar homing head that guides on the radar frequencies used on British and US ships wouldn't be hard to put together and a volley of 40 or 50 rockets at once would not be a trivial problem to deal with for any ship.

    Houthis have more missiles than most of the regular armies. In a waste variety. There is no need to supply them with something other than their own products of Iranian ones.
