The Houthi’s fundraising campaign ended earlier this week. Today, the Houthi-ran Sam FM radio station reported that the group raised over $100,000 for Lebanese Hezbollah.
Houthis continue to target Saudi facilities with cruise missiles and suicide drones. These strikes come during increased tensions between the United States and Iran.
The Houthi insurgents claimed hitting a southern Saudi airport with a cruise missile, as well as drone strikes.
Both photos and videos clearly show Yemeni people donating money to support Hezbollah, despite the current hardships plaguing Yemen.
The fundraising campaign comes on the heels of increased US sanctions against Lebanese Hezbollah.
The confirmed use of armed drones to target major oil pipelines deep within Saudi Arabia represents a major increase in the Houthis capabilities.
While strikes against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have waned over the past year, they have not halted all together. AQAP remains a significant threat.
Counterterrorism operations against AQAP have significantly tapered off in 2018 after a massive increase in 2017. The strike that killed Jamal-al Badawi is the first in Yemen since mid-September 2018.
