Houthis Threaten Undersea Internet Cables, Raising Concerns

The Houthis in Yemen are considering sabotaging vital undersea communication cables in the Red Sea, according to warnings from Yemen’s legitimate government.

These cables, crucial for internet connections between Asia and Europe, could be targeted as retaliation for US-led airstrikes on Houthi sites.

While the Houthis have shown a willingness to disrupt shipping in the region, cutting these cables would be a complex task.

While Iran is seen as a possible ally in such a move, it would risk escalating tensions with the US and could provoke retaliatory measures.

Despite facing significant opposition, the Houthis have proven resilient and continue to challenge Western interests in the region.
