Yemen's Houthis Hold Funeral For 18 Fighters Killed In US-Led Strikes

Yemen’s Houthis held a military funeral procession in Sanaa on February 10 for 18 of their fighters they say were killed in recent U.S.-led strikes.

Military officials and relatives participated in the funeral, which took place at al-Shaab Mosque, formerly known as al-Saleh mosque, the city’s largest.

Honour guards carried the fighters’ green wooden coffins, each adorned with pictures of the deceased. After funeral prayers attended by hundreds of supporters of the group, pick-up trucks, decked in green cloth, carried the coffins for burial.

The United States and Britain have recently launched strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen and returned the militia to a list of “terrorist groups.” Houthi attacks on ships in and around the Red Sea have slowed trade between Asia and Europe, raised fears of supply bottlenecks and alarmed major powers that the Gaza war may become a regional conflict.
