Yemen warns it may strike targets enemy ‘can’t even imagine’

Yemeni Armed Forces’ spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree

Yemen’s Armed Forces have warned that they might surprisingly escalate their pro-Palestinian strikes if the Israeli regime kept up its ongoing genocidal war against the Gaza Strip.

The forces’ spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree sounded the warning during a speech on Monday.

“Gaza is a red line for us, a red line. Our causes, holy sites, and our Islam are red lines, and we will not compromise on them,” he said.

“We target things that the enemy hasn't thought of and can't imagine, things that neither the Yemeni people nor the people of the [Arab and Islamic] nation can imagine,” the official asserted.

Yemen began the strikes after October 7, when the Israeli regime launched the war against Gaza that has so far killed more than 35,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children.

The Yemeni forces began the operations by hitting the Israeli vessels or those heading towards the ports of the occupied Palestinian territories that could pass through Yemen’s maritime areas.

They gradually expanded the strikes to cover targets lying across the occupied territories and vessels sailing through the Indian Ocean as the Israeli regime would refuse to accede to their demand of halting the war and a simultaneous siege that it has been enforcing against Gaza.

Earlier in May, Saree announced commencement of the fourth phase of the pro-Palestinian operations, saying the Yemeni forces would target all ships heading to Israeli ports “in the Mediterranean Sea in any area within our reach.”

He also warned that the Yemeni military would also impose sanctions on all ships of companies involved in supplying and accessing Israeli ports, regardless of their nationality, and prevent all ships of those companies from passing through the operational area of the Armed Forces, regardless of their destination.

Adding to his Monday remarks, the spokesman said, “By God's will and strength, we will reach the fifth and sixth stages [of our pro-Palestinian operations], if the enemy continues its aggression on Gaza…”
