By Manal Abdel Fattah

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman expressed that it is following with great concern the developments of the American-British bombing that affected several cities in the sister Republic of Yemen, and it can only denounce the resort to this military action by friendly countries, while Israel persists in its bombing, brutal war, and siege of the Gaza Strip without accountability or punishment.

The Ministry confirmed that the Sultanate of Oman has repeatedly warned of the expansion of the circle of conflict and confrontation in the region as a result of the ongoing Israeli aggression against the occupied Palestinian territories, especially the killing, abuse, destruction and starvation operations against civilians and residents in the Gaza Strip.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterated the position of the Sultanate of Oman calling for just and comprehensive peace in order to achieve security and stability in the region and revive growth and prosperity for all. It appealed to all parties to stop the escalation and military operations and focus on addressing the root and real causes of the crisis.

The military spokesman for the Houthi group, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said on Friday that American and British forces launched 73 raids on Yemen, killing 5 and wounding 6 other fighters from the group.

Saree added, during a statement on the “X” platform (formerly Twitter), that the group will not hesitate to “target sources of threat and all hostile targets on land and sea in defense of Yemen, its sovereignty and independence.”

The group’s spokesman held America and Britain fully responsible for their “criminal aggression against our Yemeni people, and it will not go unanswered and unpunished,” stressing that the Yemeni armed forces will not hesitate to target sources of threat “and all hostile targets on land and at sea, in defense of Yemen, its sovereignty and independence.” .

During his statement, Saree stressed that “this brutal aggression will not dissuade Yemen from its position of support and support for the oppression of the Palestinian people,” saying that “the Yemeni armed forces confirm their continued prevention of Israeli ships or those heading to the ports of occupied Palestine from navigation in the Arab and Red Seas.”

The US Central Command (Centcom) announced, at dawn on Friday, directing joint US-British strikes against Houthi targets.

Centcom explained, in a post on the “X” platform (formerly Twitter), which it attached to a video of the launch of the fighters that carried out the attack, that the strikes targeted radar systems, air defense systems, storage sites, and launch pads for drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles, according to the American “Al Hurra” channel website. .

The strikes were coordinated with Britain, and with support from Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Bahrain, according to Centcom.

For its part, the US Air Force said that it launched strikes against “60 targets in 16 Houthi sites,” targeting command and control centers, ammunition stores, launching systems, manufacturing facilities, and air defense radar systems.
