Alleged American-Israeli SPY RING in Yemen nabbed by Houthis, accused of sabotage
By Kevin Hughes // May 15, 2024

Houthi-aligned security services in Yemen have allegedly busted an American-Israeli spy ring, arresting members accused of espionage and sabotage.

The crackdown occurred on Monday, May 6, with Houthi-controlled Saba News Agency claiming that Yemeni security services had imprisoned multiple spies working for the United States and Israel. The news agency released footage of the imprisoned men, describing them as "spies recruited to collect information and monitor sites operated by the [Houthi] armed forces on Yemen's western coast for the benefit of the American and Israeli enemy."

The spies were allegedly recruited after the Houthis began targeting vessels in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden in November. This campaign, which disrupted global trade immensely, was in solidarity with the Palestinian people amid Israel's invasion of Gaza and the mounting deaths of innocent Palestinians.

The report did not indicate the number of suspects arrested, but unconfirmed images Saba shared on social media showed no less than 18 people. But Saba mentioned that the suspects had already confessed.

The security services stated that the spies were hired to work for the U.S. and Israel, adding that they are members of an intelligence unit called Force 400, which is led by spy Ammar Afash, an individual wanted by the Houthis.

As reported by the security agencies, the detained spies admitted to carrying out operations to track drones, missile launch sites and locations of Yemeni military vessels. They also sent Force 400 their coordinates so that American and British jets could target them.

Apart from the material losses, the actions of the spies brought about the deaths and injuries of other military personnel. The spies also passed on information about the growth in the number of fighters recruited by the Houthi movement in the past couple of months.

One of the spies revealed that he had sold the intelligence for only 300 Saudi riyals ($80). Likewise, the security agencies proved the fact that, based upon their admissions, the spies were assigned to carry out acts of sabotage, which involved destroying and setting fire to armed and security force vehicles.

To distract the armed forces attempting to counter the continuing American and British bombing campaign, the spies were also charged with preparing to perform assassination operations employing silenced firearms and explosive devices.

The security services reiterated their commitment to applying every effort to maintain Yemen's domestic security and stop attempts by operatives of the U.S. and Israel to enter the country. (Related: U.S. and U.K. warplanes bomb Houthi targets in Yemen in another significant escalation of Gaza war)

The Houthis, who control a significant chunk of northern Yemen, including the internationally recognized capital of Sana'a, explained in a statement that they "will spare no effort in carrying out their responsibility to secure the home front and protect it from infiltration attempts by the American and Israeli enemy."
