Iranian-backed rebels targeting Red Sea

Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are supported by Iran and Hezbollah, are threatening to prevent international boats from passing through the Red Sea if the Saudi-led Arab coalition continues its attacks on the rebels.

Yemen has been subjected to a bloody civil war in recent years. Saudi Arabia supports the Yemenite regime that was internationally recognized prior to the Houthi rebellion and is actively involved in the war against Shiite rebels, including air strikes and fighting along the border.
