Israel Says Focused on Gaza Despite Iran Regime-Backed Houthi Challenge

Israel’s military spokesperson said on Tuesday that Israel remained focused on the Gaza Strip despite attempts by the Houthi movement, backed by Iran, to challenge Israel.

“There are many actors in the region who operate as Iran proxies, such as the Houthis, who are trying to challenge us and distract us from the war in Gaza. We remain focused,” said Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari.
