Yemeni armed forces and Islamic Resistance forces in Iraq have launched new joint operations against the Israeli regime over its genocidal war against the Palestinians in Gaza.  

The spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces said on Thursday that the two joint operations with the Islamic Resistance in Iraq launched attacks on three ships in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea carrying military equipment in the port of Haifa.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq said in a statement that, “In continuation of our path of resisting the occupation, and in support of our people in Palestine, and in response to the massacres committed by the usurping entity against civilians including children, women, and the elderly, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq carried out two joint military operations with the Yemeni Armed Forces at Haifa port using drones.”

“The Islamic Resistance confirms the continuation of its operations in striking the enemies' strongholds with increasing intensity,” it added.  

The spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said that Yemen’s Armed Forces conducted two new operations in support of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, who are enduring a genocidal Israeli war.

Saree added, in response to the US’s aggression against their country, an anti-American operation had also been carried out.

"The first operation targeted two ships carrying military equipment at the port of Haifa. The second operation targeted a ship that violated the entry ban into the port of Haifa in occupied Palestine," Saree announced.

He added in the video statement released by Yemeni Armed Forces that the operations were carried out with drones and hit their targets.

"Both operations were carried out using several drones, and by the grace of Allah, the strikes were accurate."

The spokesman added, "The joint port of Haifa operation comes in response to the 'Israeli' enemy's massacres in the Rafah area. The 'Israeli' enemy should expect more qualitative joint operations in the upcoming period until it ceases its brutal criminal aggression and lifts its siege on our brothers in the Gaza Strip".

"The Yemeni Armed Forces call on all Arab armies to participate in support operations for the Palestinian resistance, fulfilling their religious and humanitarian duty towards the Palestinian people," he said.

American and British forces have been staging military offensives against the Yemenis in an attempt to stop its pro-Palestinian operations.

Since early October, at least 36,654 Palestinians have been killed, most of them women and children, in the Israeli regime forces genocidal war against Gaza’s Palestinian population.

The Iraqi resistance group has vowed to continue retaliatory attacks on Israeli targets.

It has also hit American military bases in Iraq and neighboring Syria in retaliation for Washington’s support for the Israeli genocide in Gaza.

The group has been launching attacks on Israeli targets ever since the occupying regime started a genocidal war on the Gaza Strip early last October.
