BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – The Ansrallah Movement leader, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, affirmed his steadfast stance in supporting the Palestinian people and the group’s permanent readiness for all options against Israel.
According to the official media wing of the Ansrallah forces, Al-Houthi said that “the Israeli contribution to the battle against the Yemeni people is prominent, clear and declared.”
He said in a speech on the occasion of “Quds Day” that “it is in the interest of Israel that the forces of aggression strike us in Yemen.”
Houthi stressed the steadfast and principled position and the religious and moral commitment in supporting the Palestinian people in facing the Israeli forces, as he claims they pose a danger to the entire nation.
Houthi also stressed the adherence to the nation’s right to its aid Palestine in its fight against israel.
He added to the “constant readiness of all options and a high ceiling in facing the Israeli forces in any future events.”
The Ansarallah forces have often expressed their support to the Palestinian cause, while also negotiating on behalf of groups like Hamas to exchange prisoners with Saudi Arabia to free its members.
According to the official media wing of the Ansrallah forces, Al-Houthi said that ‘the Israeli contribution to the battle against the Yemeni people is prominent, clear and declared.

“Iran has developed a new type of antiaircraft missile and shipped it to Houthi rebels in Yemen, Pentagon officials announced Wednesday.
A military official familiar with the weapons, referred to as 358 missiles, described them as cruise missiles that are designed to avoid United States defensive measures and that can down American military helicopters, as well as the tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey.
The missiles consist of three parts: two motors and an explosive warhead. The weapon can be assembled after shipment and fired from a crude launcher on the ground. Once the missile is fired and traveling fast enough, a solid-fuel boost motor falls away and a cruise motor takes over; at that point, the weapon flies in a figure-eight pattern and looks for targets.”
Such claims by the Yemenis are by no means boastful. We spoke about the prospects of Yemen becoming a pipeline for Iranian heavy-grade weapons into Gaza before… Getting heavier-grade Iranian weapons to Gaza is a daunting task, especially since the Egyptians bordering Palestine work with the Israelis.
However, if only a fraction of the Iranian weaponry in Yemen reaches Gaza, the Israelis are in for great surprises.
As we explained earlier, Saudi airstrikes in Yemen have greatly died down after the Yemenis started fielding advanced air defences this year.
