Hamas terms US, UK attacks violation of Yemen's sovereignty

TEHRAN, Jun. 01 (MNA) – The Palestinian Resistance movement Hamas has strongly condemned recent deadly airstrikes carried out by the US and the UK on Yemen and described it as a blatant violation of Yemen’s sovereignty.

In a statement on Friday Hamas censured the airstrikes as a blatant violation of Yemen’s sovereignty after American and British warplanes and US warships targeted the western Yemeni provinces of Sana’a, al-Hudaydah, and Ta’izz, killing at least 16 civilians and wounding more than 40 others. 

The airstrikes also hit the capital, Sana’a, and the southwestern city of Taiz.

Hamas also said the attacks are a continuation of Western policy of suppressing the people who support Palestine.

Following the attacks, Yemen's Ansarullah Resistance movement vowed a "painful response" to the atrocities.

“The Americans and Britons must have understood how powerful Yemeni strikes will be. Our ballistic missiles can target desired targets in the sea and in the occupied Palestinian territories," said Ali al-Qahoum, a member of the Political Bureau of the Ansarullah Resistance movement.

Shortly afterward, the Yemeni Armed Forces said they had targeted the US aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Red Sea in response to the deadly American attacks.

“The operation was carried out with a number of winged and ballistic missiles,” the forces’ spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree said, noting that “the hit was accurate and direct.”
