Member of the Supreme Political Council of the “Group”Ansar Allah HouthisMuhammad Ali Al-Houthi received widespread interaction on social media platforms, after he rebuked a BBC presenter who questioned the feasibility of the group targeting Israeli ships in the Red Sea.
In response to a question by the broadcaster about what the Houthis achieved by targeting Israeli interests, describing those attacks as “noise without flour” and did not cause any harm to Israel, Muhammad Ali Al-Houthi said, “Then why does America call for an international coalition against us as long as those attacks did not achieve anything?” .
