Yemen’s Iranian backed Houthi rebel group have vowed that they will continue to attack Israel with missile attacks.
This comes as Israel continue with their air, land and sea military operations obliterating many parts of the Gaza Strip and the Houthis as a result are firing missiles and drones towards Israel.
The Houthis said “launched a large batch of ballistic missiles… and a large number of armed aircraft” at Israel.

“The Yemeni Armed Forces… confirm they will continue to carry out qualitative strikes with missiles and drones until the Israeli aggression stops,” said a Houthi military statement aired on the group’s Al-Masirah TV.
On Tuesday the “hostile aircraft intrusion” set off warning sirens in the popular resort town of Eilat and Israeli military said “surface-to-surface missile” that was fired towards Israel was “successfully intercepted by the Arrow aerial defence system.”
The Houthi Prime Minister Abdelaziz bin c, of Yemen’s government said on Tuesday that they are “part of the axis of resistance” against Israel.
He said that they are fighting with both “words and drones” alongside with Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iranian backed groups in Syria and Iraq.
Habtour said, “It is one axis and there is coordination taking place, a joint operations room, and a joint command for all these operations.
“We cannot allow this arrogant Zionist enemy to kill our people.”
On Sunday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi warned on X, Israel has now “crossed the red lines, and this may force everyone to take action.”
