Houthi spokesperson Muhammed al-Bukhaiti criticised the UK and the US for their role in the war in Gaza

This comes as both the UK and US destroyed dozens of military targets last week in Yemen, with the Houthis vowing to extract "unimaginable" revenge.

A few missile strikes against Houthi rebels will not stop them.  They have survived an absolute onslaught from Saudi Arabia.  Tunnels here and tunnels there.  Tunnels all over the place, apparently. 

The world is being reshaped.  On the one side, we have countries who are no longer willing to allow the US to bully them, and on the other, we have the US, UK and the EU going about their business of alienating all those who associate with them, whilst effectively peeing off their own people at the same time.
