Iran Holds Secret Meeting in Yemen With Houthi Leaders

Leaders of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps met with Houthi rebels on March 24 to discuss attacks on commercial shipping through the Red Sea, according to Ramallah-based al-Ayyam newspaper.

Escalation risk: The two groups made plans to ramp up and expand their campaign on commercial vessels and warships. Those plans included using missiles, launching drone boats, planting sea mines, preparing booby-trapped boats, and trying to board ships.

Iran has claimed that the Houthis act independently, but this recent meeting shows that Iran wields considerable power over the proxy group.

The push: Iran isn’t showing any signs of backing down, and the suspension of Red Sea trade is hurting Europe’s economy. The Trumpet has written extensively about a soon-coming clash between Iran and Europe.
