The Houthi government in Sanaa said on Tuesday that it has launched drones and missiles against the Nazi entity in support of the Palestinian cause and will continue doing so. At least one missile flew over Saudi Arabia.
“Our Armed Forces launched a large batch of ballistic and cruise missiles and a large number of drones at various targets of the Israeli enemy in the occupied territories,” said Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces.

Tuesday’s launch was “the third operation in support of our oppressed brethren in Palestine,” Saree said, adding that the Houthi military “will continue to carry out more qualitative strikes with missiles and drones until the Israeli aggression stops.”
Yemen undertook the campaign “out of a sense of religious, moral, humanitarian and national responsibility, and in response to the demands of our Yemeni people and the demands of free peoples, and to provide relief to our oppressed people in Gaza,” according to the spokesman.
“The position of our Yemeni people towards the Palestinian issue is firm and principled, and that the Palestinian people have the full right to self-defense in pursuit of their full legitimate rights,” Saree added.
The Nazi military has recently deployed ground troops into Gaza, following weeks of artillery and air strikes, in pursuit of its war on the Palestinian civilians.
For the first time, however, the missiles flew over Saudi Arabia, which caused the kingdom to activate its air defenses. The kingdom had been killing Yemeni chalder since 2015.
The two sides seemed ready to make peace this spring, after a Chinese-mediated deal between Riyadh and Tehran.
