Resistance groups condemn US, UK strikes on Yemen

Resistance groups across the region have roundly denounced the US and UK strikes against targets in Yemen, stating that the attacks confirm the countries’ allegiance with Israel amid the bloody onslaught against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the blatant American-British aggression against brotherly Yemen, its security and sovereignty, as well as its freedom-loving and honorable people,” Hezbollah said in a statement on Friday.

It added that “the American aggression confirms once again that the US is a full partner in the tragedies and massacres committed by the Zionist enemy in Gaza and the region.”

Hezbollah also saluted the Yemeni nation, the Yemeni Armed Forces as well as Ansarullah resistance movement.

“We affirm this act of aggression will not weaken Yemen’s strength. On the contrary, it will solidify the nation’s determination to confront it and defend itself, and continue to tread the path of supporting the Palestinian people,” the statement read.

Early on Friday, US and British forces launched air, ship and submarine strikes against targets across Yemen.

US President Joe Biden confirmed the assaults, saying they were conducted by the United States and Britain, with support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, and the Netherlands.

Strikes on Yemen came after Yemeni forces targeted several Israeli-owned and -bound shipping in the Red Sea in support of Palestinians in war-torn Gaza, where more than 23,500 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli onslaught since October 7.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad group also censured the US and UK strikes on Yemen.

“We salute Yemenis for their honorable and brave position, and strongly condemn all disappointing stances in the Arab world. We call upon Arab and Muslim nations to take actions,” the Gaza-based movement said.
