The Houthis officially declared war on Israel: They targeted the nuclear plant in Dimona – Mass attack with ballistic missiles, cruises and drones

At least one missile landed in Jordan – Yemen, the first country to enter the war

The Houthis have now officially declared war on Israel, announcing a large-scale attack with ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones against Israeli targets.

Yemen is the first country to enter the war against Israel. This means that the forces that make up the “Axis of Resistance” have been ordered to escalate and gradually enter war with Israel.

According to reports, the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center in Dimona, Israel, was also a target of the Houthis. Fortunately, the missiles never arrived.

The Arrow air defense system intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) over the Red Sea en route to Eilat in southern Israel. This is the first operational use of the “Arrow” air defense system since the beginning of the war and in March 2017.

At least one Quds-3 missile fired by the Houthis towards Israel was skidded/intercepted(?) over Jordan.

Houthi involvement is quite serious. Their forces have medium-range Toufan ballistic missiles (Iranian Quds 3) with a range of ~1950 km. For this reason, the Saudi Army was put on high alert.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels have declared war on Israel

“We, out of a sense of religious, moral, humanitarian and national responsibility, and in response to the demands of our Yemeni people and the demands of the free peoples, and to provide relief to our oppressed people in Gaza, have deemed it necessary for the Yemeni Armed Forces to perform their duty, relying on God and victory over the historical oppression of the beloved Palestinian people.”

The IDF claimed that Ibrahim Biari, the commander of Hamas’s Central Jabaliya Battalion who they say was one of the leaders behind the October 7 massacre in Israel, was killed in the intense blast. 

In a statement, the IDF said: ‘A short while ago, IDF fighter jets, acting on ISA intelligence, killed Ibrahim Biari, the Commander of Hamas’ Central Jabaliya Battalion.

Buildings have been levelled in the densely-populated neighbourhood, opening up huge sinkholes, with residents likening it to an earthquake and saying that the ground began to collapse around them.
