Reports from that zone stated that on November 10, a band of Houthi rebels raided the U.S. embassy trying to get ‘’large quantities of equipment and materials.’’
Storming of the facility happened only one week after the Houthis kidnapped Yemeni nationals working for the U.S. embassy.
Translated report from MEMRI stated, “The alleged raid comes after the Houthis kidnapped three Yemeni nationals affiliated with the U.S. Embassy from one of the employee’s private residences in Sana’a on November 5.’’
At least 22 other Yemenis in the past few weeks, stating that the hostages “worked on the security staff guarding the embassy grounds.”
The State Department confirmed this event to the Washington Free Beacon that the Yemeni personnel is held hostages by some Iran-backed terrorists.
“The United States has been unceasing in its diplomatic efforts to secure their release,” the State Department said. “The majority of the detained have been released, but the Houthis continue to detain additional Yemeni employees of the embassy.”
One ex-embassy staffer, an economic officer, and a U.S.s Agency for International Development worker are kidnapped and detained by the Houthis.
The State Department stated that they were “concerned about the breach of the compound” and are calling for the Houthis involved to “immediately vacate it and return all seized property.”
The crisis is expected to exacerbate tensions between the U.S. and Iran, which said the country also supplies weapons and finances to the Houthi rebels in Yemen.
