Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has hailed the Yemenis’ anti-Israel naval operations in the Red Sea, saying they did a “great job” in defiance of US threats.

Speaking during a meeting with Friday Prayer leaders on Tuesday, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Yemeni maritime campaign in support of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip “deserves admiration and appreciation.”

“The Yemeni nation and the Ansarullah government did a great job… They damaged the vital channels of the Zionist regime. The United States threatened [them], but they were not afraid of the US,” he stated.

“Their job is rightly and fairly an example of jihad (endeavor for the sake of God). We hope that these efforts, acts of resistance and activities will continue until victory.”
