Details: Houthis Spokesperson Yahia Sarie stated that the militants launched the attack "out of a sense of religious, moral, humanitarian, and national responsibility" to the residents of Gaza "in the face of the weakness of the Arab world, and of the collusion of some Arab countries with Israel".
He explained that the attack was carried out because of "the demands of the Yemeni people".
This was the third attack against Israel since the escalation of the conflict. Yahia Sarie also promised that the militants will launch more missile and drone strikes on Israel.
The Times of Israel reports that the launched missiles and drones were shot down and intercepted by the air defence system and aircraft of Israel.
