Yemen’s Houthis claim attack on vital target in Israel’s Haifa

Yemen’s Houthis said on Tuesday that they, along with the Islamic resistance in Iraq, have conducted a joint military operation, attacking a vital target in Israel’s Haifa.

The Houthi group has been launching drone and missile strikes in shipping lanes since November, in what it says is in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.

The military operation has been carried out with “a number of winged missiles,” Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Saree said in a televised statement, without identifying the target that was attacked.
