5- Mohammad Ali al-Houthi, a member of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen, in response to the deployment of EU military forces to the Red Sea: “For Europeans, do not play with fire. Take a lesson from Britain. You do not need the support of the American devil to protect the occupying entity to exterminate the people of Gaza. International shipping is safe, and your presence increases the militarization of the sea, targets international shipping, and affects food supply chains for the stores of your countries. Any foolishness you commit will result in damage to your ships and navigation.”

6- Abdul Aziz Bin Habtoor, the Prime Minister of the Salvation Government of Yemen, in a television interview with Al-Mairah channel: “Until the aggression against Gaza ends, we will not negotiate and the operation in the Red Sea will not stop either. Bab al-Mandab is clearly Yemeni and our decision in this strait has legal, objective, moral and strategic grounds. We tell the world that today Yemen is the main actor. We are not in America, China and Russia, we are in our land and we are standing together with Gaza. The issue of Palestine has become the issue of all free nations and the axis of resistance has played an important role in this issue.”
