Iran-Backed Militants Setting up Missile Sites at Yemen University

Saudi Brigadier General Ahmed Asiri told reporters yesterday that the Houthis were utilizing the inhumane, guerilla tactics in order to keep their hold on power. The Houthis are using residential houses “as hideouts and stores for their equipment, and sometimes installing anti-aircraft equipment on top of civilian buildings to attract the alliance to bombard them and commit killing of innocents,” Gen. Asiri told the Saudi Press Agency.

Some observers have noted that the Houthis are adopting tactics akin to Iran-backed Palestinian terror group Hamas, which utilized UN buildings and residential areas to launch missile strikes against Israel last summer. During the Israel-Hamas war, the Gaza-ruling terror group also used civilians as human shields so they could launch attacks under protected conditions.
