The Supreme Political Council of Ansar Allah (more widely known as the Houthis) threatened Saudi Arabia with more strikes and ‘major operations’ if the Kingdom continues its blockade imposed on Yemen.
According to pro-Houthi sources, the threats came amid the continued detention of oil ships en route to Yemen. The lack of fuel, food and vital supplies contributes to the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in the country.
The Houthi side says that the fuel crisis in Yemen inflicts a heavy blow on the lives of the ordinary people in Yemen. The Saudi blockade continues amid the de-facto silence of the international community. So, the Houthis say that they are not going to step back and will fight against the Kingdom and further.
A brief overview of the recent developments in Yemen:
- The Liaison and Coordination Officers’ Operations Room (loyal to Ansar Allah [the Houthis]) reported 110 ceasefire violations in al-Hudaydah during the past 24 hours;
