Yemen Houthis leader says we will further escalate if attack on Gaza doe

The leader of Yemen’s Houthis, Abdul Malik al-Houthi, said on Tuesday that the group “will further escalate” if the Israeli attack on Gaza does not stop.

Iran-aligned Houthis have been targeting commercial vessels with drones and missiles in the Red Sea since mid-November in what they describe as acts of solidarity with Palestinians in the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.
