The internationally recognised government of Yemen has said it holds the Iran-backed Houthi militant group “responsible for dragging the country into a military confrontation” in the Red Sea.

In a statement, the Saudi-backed government said it is “following with great concern the military escalation in the country, particularly in the Red Sea, by the Houthi rebels.”

It said the US-UK operation was a response to the “Houthi militias’ continued targeting and threatening the security and safety of international navigation in the Red Sea.”

It said the Houthis are using “misleading claims that have no real connection to supporting our brothers and sisters in the occupied Palestinian territories”.

The government said that the military escalation in the area “threatens the security and safety of international navigation.”
