'Political Game': Yemen's Houthis Slam UN Resolution On Red Sea Navigation

The Houthis have threatened to strike Israeli or Israeli-bound ships.

Cairo:

On Thursday, Yemen’s Houthi supreme revolutionary committee leader Mohammed Ali al-Houthi called the UN Red Sea navigation resolution a “political game” and accused the US of breaking international law.

The UN Security Council demanded Yemen’s Houthis stop attacking ships in the Red Sea on Wednesday and indirectly supported a US-led task force guarding vessels while warning against escalation.

Al-Houthi wrote on Twitter that Yemeni military forces were acting in defense and that any action they took would be retaliated.

“We call on the Security Council to immediately release 2.3 Million people from the Israeli-American siege in Gaza,” stated.

The Houthis, an Iran-aligned force that took parts of Yemen in a civil war, have threatened to target ships destined for Israeli ports to support Hamas Islamists fighting the Israeli operation in Gaza. However, several targeted ships had no Israeli ties.
