“The United States and Britain must prepare to pay a heavy price and bear the severe consequences of this aggression. » A few hours after the US-British attacks on the rebels in Yemen, Hussein Al-Ezzi, the Houthis' deputy foreign minister, did not mince his words about his death and made no secret of his intention to take revenge.
Angrily, Hamas warned that this “blatant aggression” would have “impact on regional security.” Russia, in turn, castigated this operation as having “destructive objectives,” which it said could lead to an “escalation” of violence. This is a “new example of the Anglo-Saxons’ distortion of UN Security Council resolutions and a complete disregard for international law,” the Kremlin further condemns and describes these attacks as “illegitimate.”
Iran also spoke out loudly, condemning an “arbitrary action” and a “blatant violation of Yemen’s sovereignty.” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticizes a “disproportionate” response from allied forces. “America and Israel are using the same disproportionate force against the Palestinians, and the British are following in America's footsteps. They want to cause a bloodbath in the Red Sea,” he added.
Are there any fears that the conflict will spread? This is what China fears, saying it is “concerned”. This Friday it called on “the concerned parties to show restraint”, as did Saudi Arabia, which said it was following the recent events “with great concern”.
While France called for an end to the attacks and pointed out that the Houthis bore “extreme responsibility for the regional escalation,” NATO, for its part, considered that the US-British airstrikes were “defensive” and “aimed at preserving freedom shipping.” on one of the most important sea routes in the world.” “The Houthi attacks must end,” emphasized Dylan White, spokesman for the alliance.
