The spokesman for the Houthi-aligned Yemeni armed forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, announced yesterday that a new documentary will be airing in the coming days, which will reveal the extent of Israel’s Mossad spy operations in the war-torn country.

The documentary entitled “The Spy of Mossad in Yemen”, will shed light on part of Israel’s intervention in the country and “the plan to target Yemen militarily, and other secrets revealed for the first time”, said Saree in a tweet.

The announcement of the documentary is thought to be in connection to reports that a Mossad spy was arrested by the Houthi-led de facto government.

It also comes amid earlier reports that Israel and the UAE have been working to establish a spy base on the strategically-located island of Socotra. The UAE has also been accused of constructing an air base on the Mayyun Island, situated off the Yemeni coast in the Bab El-Mandeb.

Both developments recently drew condemnation of the UAE by the Sanaa-based government over violating Yemen’s sovereignty and contravening international law, especially following the illegally-run tours to Socotra from Abu Dhabi, some of which included Israeli tourists.

“The transfer of tourists to the Socotra Island reveals the plans and programs of the occupying UAE, which are in line with the Zionist schemes to dominate Yemeni islands as well as the steps towards normalization with the regime,” a statement read.

The Houthi movement has previously threatened to attack Israel if it was “involved in any action against our people”, threats which Israel has taken seriously having deployed its Iron Dome and Patriot air defence systems around the southern city of Eilat early this year.
