"A mob of hundreds of protesters demonstrated outside the Yemeni foreign consulate in New York City Friday night in response to the U.S. military strike on Houthi rebels, a militant Islamist group that attacked cargo ships in the Red Sea.
The Iran-backed terrorists have been launching assaults against Israel and shipping vessels that dare to cross the sea between Africa and Asia, adding to supply chain issues and the rising prices of imported goods. According to U.S. officials, Houthis have launched 27 separate attacks in solidarity with Hamas since the Palestinian terror group’s October 7 attack on Israel.
The retaliatory strike was launched on Thursday by collaborating U.S., U.K., and other allied military forces after several warnings were made to the Houthis to stop their attacks:
Friday’s ‘Hands Off Yemen’ protest occurred at the Permanent Mission of Yemen to the United Nations in Manhattan, with some protesters getting violent, the New York Post reported.
One couple carrying an Israeli flag during the rally was attacked while ‘attempting to wade through the crowd with their dog.’ The man was shoved and their flag was stolen so the terrorist-sympathizers could try to light it on fire.
‘Long live Hamas, you piece of shit!’ shouted a man waving a ‘Free Palestine’ flag at the couple:
The NYC couple, who chose to remain anonymous, told the outlet they were walking to a local dog park when the mob blocked their path.
The man, who is Israeli, recounted how he ran back to his apartment to grab his flag before trying to make his way through the crowd before he was assaulted..."
