An expert has warned that “bloodthirsty” Iranian backed Houthi militants that ongoing conflict in Yemen and the Middle East could lead to a “world war.”

The US and UK launched airstrikes on Houthi targets in Yemen in the early hours of Friday and overnight through to Saturday morning the US launched another air campaign against the militants.

The leader of the Houthis Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, warned that the US and UK will realise that their actions will be the “greatest folly in their history.”

Middle Eastern experts are warning the airstrikes by the US and UK is risking a wider conflict across the Middle East.

The Houthis’ Supreme Political Council warned in a statement, that “all American-British interests have become legitimate targets for the Yemeni armed forces.”

They called the coalition airstrikes a “direct and declared aggression against the Republic of Yemen” and labelled the US and UK as the “aggressors.”

The Houthis militants have been launching “attack drones” on commercial vessels in the shipping lanes of the Red Sea in response to Israel’s war on Hamas which has led to more than 24,000 innocent Palestinians killed.

Professor Anthony Glees from Buckingham University said that the 72 US and UK airstrikes on Yemen is essential to “end their nonsense.”

Professor Glees told the Daily Star, “We cannot allow the Shia rebels, backed by Iran, to strike against the freedom of the seas and plunge us back into economic recession by forcing international shipping to avoid the Suez Canal.”

Prof Glees expressed his concerns and warned, “My own feeling is that trying to appease Iran or the Houthis by taking it on the chin, forcing the Suez Canal to be closed to international shipping is much more likely to eventually lead to a world war than our hitting very hard indeed the moment they poke us with their sticks.”

He stressed, “What needs to be understood is that the local war, between Israel and Hamas, has, since 2300 our time January 11, become a regional war, provoked by the Houthis supported by Iran and using weapons it has supplied.”

He added, that if Iran does “respond we must expect that this regional war will become a wider war and, given Putin’s ongoing attacks on Ukraine, perhaps even a general or world war.”
