Has Yemen entered the fifth phase of escalation?

With the focus of attacks on the striking force of America in the Red Sea, Yemeni operations have effectively entered a new turning point. Is this part of the escalation strategy followed in its successive stages or merely a response to the American-British aggression?

Exclusive – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:

For the second time within 24 hours, Yemeni forces have announced the targeting of the American aircraft carrier “Eisenhower” in the Red Sea. This marks the launch of a battle that will not stop until this destroyer is withdrawn from the region or sunk.

It is noteworthy that this is the first official announcement by Yemen of targeting “Eisenhower,” as stated by their official spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saree. Despite the deployment of the US fleet “Eisenhower” with its four destroyers by the US in 2021, it has been trying in recent months, since the start of the Yemeni operations supporting Gaza, to halt the operations, sometimes by interception and other times by attack, as its battleships were previously targeted, including the “USS Laboon,” not to mention a previous decision by the US Defense Department to withdraw Eisenhower itself, the aircraft carrier, for maintenance before returning it.

Although Yemen’s decision to officially list “Eisenhower” on the list of targets came after a new British American attack on Yemen, targeting the provinces of Hudaydah, Sana’a, and Taiz and resulting in about 60 martyrs and wounded, it indicates that Yemen’s decision to focus operations against “Eisenhower” is a response to those assaults amid threats issued by the political leadership.

However, the coincidence of this step with regional and international developments also indicates that the Yemeni operations have entered a new phase out of the six phases that the leader of the Ansar Allah movement, Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, promised to implement in response to the Israeli attacks on Gaza, the last of which was targeting Rafah, and four of these phases have already been implemented.

Regardless of the goal of targeting Eisenhower, the facts on the ground indicate Yemen’s partial success in achieving it. The US Defense Department has begun discussing ending Eisenhower’s mission within a month, according to the Associated Press. The US President has also announced a new proposal that meets the conditions of the Palestinian resistance, all of which, according to experts, are linked to the new Yemeni escalation, including the targeting of “Eisenhower.”
