Report: Israel Plans to Attack the Houthis in Yemen Because “Iran”

The Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida is quoting “sources” familiar with the situation ho say that Israel is planning to start attacking targets in the Shi’ite Houthi movementin northern Yemen, as well as targets along the Straits of Bab el-Mandeb.
The strikes are being presented by Israeli officials as a continuation of Israel’s attacks against Iranian interests, with the sources setting this up to spin the attack as being about Iranian weapons shipments.
Israel is said to be sharing intelligence with the Arab states in the area, presumably meaning Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and other GCC nations involved in the ongoing war in Yemen.
Spinning the Houthis as a major client of Iran is in keeping with US and Saudi narratives trying to justify the Yemen War, and even though the Houthis have denied this, Israel seems to be willing to buy in.

Originally this site was supposed to be a way for us all to learn more about Asia. It still is, but learning about it I have been struck by how influential and present the American Empire is even in this part of the world. Inescapably then a resource about Asia also has to be about the state and activities of the Empire. Influence which is malign, but fortunately for itself and the rest of us, Asia is much too large, much too ancient, and much to proud to suffer US hegemony for too long. The salvation, the retreat of the Empire, starts in Asia. Join in to follow this welcome development.
