Terrorists Vow Revenge After Massive Airstrike

In reaction to Sunday’s bombings in Yemen by the United States and the United Kingdom, Houthi rebels have vowed to step up their counterattack.

The Iran-backed group’s representative said that they will not back down from their attempts to disrupt regional trade no matter how many lives are lost. The United States and the United Kingdom responded to a drone strike on a U.S. base in Jordan that killed several people by launching a string of strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen over the weekend.

After an attack in Jordan killed three American soldiers, tensions in the region rose sharply. The president has promised to keep cracking down on groups in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon that receive funding or support from Iran.

On Sunday, Jake Sullivan, national security advisor to the president, did not rule out the prospect of future strikes in Iran.

Meanwhile, Israel’s continuing struggle with Hamas may face a new obstacle due to the rising tensions with Hezbollah. Since October 7, the Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist outfit Hezbollah has launched many missiles towards Israel’s northern border. A warning has been issued by Israeli military officials, who have also indicated their preparedness to take action if needed.

Recent strikes in Yemen targeted thirteen sites associated with Houthi ammunition and storage facilities, according to U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. The Houthis have threatened both commercial and military ships in the Red Sea, threatening to continue their attacks until Israel’s bombardment on Gaza comes to an end. Hamas condemned the strikes as a blatant aggression on the sovereignty of another Arab state.

Attacks against commercial and military ships in the Red Sea by missiles or drones have been carried out by the rebel group in the past few months. Trade routes have been disrupted, and the region has become more unstable due to these attacks. It should be mentioned that these attacks are happening while Israel is engaged in a war with the Palestinian militant organization Hamas, which is backed by Iran and has been labeled as a terrorist group by the United States.

The United States and Britain have joined forces to attack Houthi assets for the third time. Over the weekend, Austin reaffirmed the United States’ dedication to saving lives and preserving trade along one of the world’s most important rivers.

U.S. officials revealed this week that since last October, U.S. personnel have been targeted on more than 160 occasions by various groups sponsored by Iran.
