Ansarullah leader deplores US hegemony as Yemenis attack more ships

Tehran, IRNA – The leader of Yemen's Ansarullah resistance movement has deplored US plans to consolidate its military, political and economic hegemony in the West Asia region, vowing that attacks in the Red Sea will continue until the US-Israeli war on Gaza stops.

“The US military domination over different countries and regions of the world takes place through establishment of military bases and control over the armies,” Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said on a televised speech on Tuesday.

He added that the US economic hegemony is a serious obstacle hindering growth of nations by plundering their wealth.

The Ansarullah leader further noted that the United States imposes its political hegemony on other nations by stirring up political turmoil and stoking division in those countries.

Al-Houthi said Ansarullah, which has declared its open support for the Palestinians, will escalate its attacks in the Red Sea “if the barbaric and brutal aggression against Gaza does not stop.”

His remarks came shortly after the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) reported an explosion near a merchant vessel off Yemen’s port of Aden.

The British maritime security firm Ambrey identified the ship as Marshall Islands-flagged bulk carrier, and said it was targeted southwest of Aden. The vessel was travelling from the US to India.

Earlier in the day, Ansarullah officials said the Yemeni armed forces had struck two more ships in the Red Sea in solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza.
