Houthi fighters are ready to support Palestinian resistance, Al Masdar reported the leader of the group saying.

In a speech to his supporters, Sayyid Abdul-Malik Badreddin Al-Houthi said his fighters were ready to join any confrontation with Israel. Arabs and Muslims should not be silent in the face of the US-backed actions in the region, he added, and should stand up for Palestinian resistance.

He called on his supporters to demonstrate in support of Al-Aqsa.

Al-Houthi went on to commend Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah for being outspoken against the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
