The Ansar Allah (Houthi) group launched a new strategy that is compatible with what it calls "the Battle of Al-Aqsa Flood." Sources from the group told Sheba Intelligence that under this strategy, many changes were made, including linking mobilization to the group's officials in every geographical area.


The sources pointed out the individuals who were called "supervisors" in the Houthi-controlled provinces and institutions are now called mobilization and propagation officials. Moreover, the mobilization and propagation officials will be deployed to all districts in urban and rural areas.  


The sources added that the group will continue to implement the third phase of the Popular Mobilization through a cultural and intellectual rehabilitation program for youth, in addition to military courses in every district and village in Yemen, to double the number of its fighters to "confront the Israeli and American aggression in the Red Sea".


The killing of ten Houthi fighters and the sinking of three Houthi boats by the U.S. forces in the Red Sea yesterday infuriated the group, pushing it to heighten its efforts to mobilize more fighters.


In the same vein, the Houthis moved on the ground to arrange their military forces, and they redeployed missiles and forces. They also deployed communication and defense systems in their strategic military centers, including Sana'a, Al-Hudaydah, and Saada, in preparation for attacks by the U.S.-led coalition forces.



On Monday, an intelligence source told Sheba Intelligence that Houthi military leaders, accompanied by foreign experts believed to be Iranian, visited the highlands overlooking Al-Hudaydah and the Red Sea, including Raymah, Al Mahwit, and Hajjah as ballistic missile platforms were deployed in some of those highlands.
