After launching an operation to "protect the Red Sea" Al-Houthi: We will respond to any European foolishness

The Yemeni Houthi group said that it would respond to any European "foolishness" in the Red Sea, in response to Operation Aspids, which the European Union announced its launch on Monday, against the backdrop of attacks carried out by the Houthi group.

On Tuesday, the Yemeni Houthi group warned against any European move to protect Israeli ships in the Red Sea, threatening to respond.

On Monday, the European Union announced the launch of operations of a European naval mission called "ASPEDS" to protect commercial ships in the Red Sea, against the backdrop of attacks carried out by the Houthi group.

A member of the group’s Supreme Political Council, Muhammad Ali Al-Houthi, said: “We say to the Europeans: Do not play with fire, and you do not need the support of the United States to protect the occupying entity (meaning the Israeli ships), and take a lesson from Britain,” referring to the group’s targeting of a number of British ships that provide support to their American counterparts. And Israel in the Red Sea.

He continued, addressing the European Union: “Your presence increases the militarization of the Red Sea, targets international navigation, and affects food supply chains for your countries’ stores,” without further details.

On the other hand, the group announced, earlier Tuesday, that an American-British raid targeted a farm in Hodeidah Governorate, west of the country.

The Houthi-affiliated Saba News Agency quoted an unnamed security source as saying, "The American-British aggression targeted the Sardoud farm in the Al-Kadan area of ​​Al-Dhahi District in Hodeidah Governorate."

Late on Monday, the Yemeni group broadcast scenes it said were of the downing of an American MQ9 drone worth $30 million, after it was targeted with a missile in Hodeidah Governorate, western Yemen.

The scenes showed "the American plane being monitored and the moment it was targeted by a home-made surface-to-air missile directly in the sky of Hodeidah Governorate," according to the Houthi-run Saba News Agency.


According to the agency, the drone that was shot down “is among the latest American drones, and includes high technological specifications, including an advanced radar system and high-precision cameras and sensors that can scan an area with a diameter of 360 degrees. The value of the drone, along with the control room, missiles and other devices, is $30 million.” .
