Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, also known as Abu Jabr'il, is the spiritual leader of the Ansar Allah movement in Yemen, also known as the Zaidi Shia movement in Yemen, and the commander-in-chief of the Ansar Allah fighters in Yemen since 2004. He was introduced as one of the influential figures in the Islamic world. He is the son of Sayyid Badr al-Din al-Houthi. Hussein Badr al-Din al-Houthi, his brother, was killed by the Yemeni army forces in 2004.


Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, son of Sayyid Badreddin al-Houthi, was born in 1979. He was born into a poor family and received his religious and sectarian education in religious schools in his hometown. He was educated under the teachings of his father, Badreddin al-Houthi, a religious scholar and a member of the Zaidi Shia minority in Yemen. He, like his family, paid a lot of attention to regional and international affairs and followed them. He spent part of his childhood in the region of "Maran" in the province of Saada in northwestern Yemen and another part of this period in the region of "Jum'ah bin Fasil" in the district of "Haydan" in Saada and also spent his youth in the same region. It is said that he lived for a while in Qom with his father Sayyid Badreddin al-Houthi and his older brother Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi.


He was only 28 years old when he was elected as the leader of the Houthi group. In this way, he surpassed his older brothers and enjoyed the approval of his father. This event happened after the martyrdom of his brother Hussein al-Houthi, the founder of the Houthi movement, in 2004.


The contemporary Karbala

The leader of the Ansarullah movement of Yemen put emphasis on resistance to achieve victory over the aggressors to Yemen and called the scene of Yemen "the contemporary Karbala.[1] Houthi said in a speech that the heroic forces of the Yemeni army and the popular committees, with their faith, crushed the American tanks under their feet. He addressed the war in Gaza and the crimes of the occupying regime of Jerusalem and said that this regime has turned hospitals into obvious military targets. He said: "The Israeli enemy is proud of its crimes and the war that it has waged against civilians. The Zionist regime attacks civilians whenever it is defeated in the military field."

In an emergency meeting of the leaders of Islamic countries

Houthi said that it is clear that the Arab regimes are losing their seriousness in taking action on what is happening in Gaza. He said that the emergency meeting of the leaders of the Arab countries did not present any position on what is happening in Palestine. The leader of Ansarullah of Yemen said: The summit that claims to represent all Muslims, its output is only a statement and an oral demand. Is this the ability of 57 Arab countries? He also announced a missile and drone attack on the Israeli regime and said that the Israeli enemy did not dare to install its flag on its ships in the Red Sea; rather, it resorted to hiding and covering the flags and this indicates the effectiveness of our positions and our influence in attacking the Zionist enemy.[2]

The most heinous crimes

He added: "In the past 75 days that the Jewish Israeli Zionist enemy has been attacking the people of Palestine, this regime has committed the most heinous crimes; the Zionist enemy targets the people of Palestine with all the tools of genocide and kills them with brutal methods from starvation to siege and prevention of food and medicine entry. In hospitals we see that the enemy has made them an obvious target for its attacks, so that its military operations in al-Shifa Hospital and other hospitals were unprecedented" The leader of Yemen's resistance in relation to the inaction of the Arab countries and the movement of the axis of resistance said: that some Arab countries even prevent demonstrations in support of Gaza, while the axis of resistance is present in the scene at the military, media and popular levels.

The correct position of Yemen

Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said that the people of Yemen, by adopting the correct position at all levels, have offered any help and support that they could in support of Palestine. He added: "Our dear people have taken action in their correct position and declared war on the Jewish Israeli Zionist enemy and mobilized their missile and drone capabilities to target the enemy; our nation has entered the action in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea (Makran) and prevents the movement of Israeli ships and ships related to Israel so that goods do not reach the ports of Israel." Abdul-Malik Houthi announced Yemen's readiness to send hundreds of thousands of people to Palestine and said: "We openly and explicitly asked the countries that geographically distance us from occupied Palestine to open the land crossings so that hundreds of thousands of our people can go to Palestine." The leader of Ansarullah Yemen also said: "These days we are trying to develop our military capabilities to use them to confront the countries that are trying to stand against our attacks on the Zionist enemy in the region".[3]

The arms of Zionism

Sayyid Abdul-Malik added: America, which introduces itself as a peace observer in the Middle East, while opposing any resolution for a ceasefire in Gaza and insisting on continuing the massacre of civilians. He stressed: America prevents any movement to support civilians in Palestine and obstructs any effort to provide the needs of the Palestinian people in terms of food and medicine. America, in order for Israel to commit its crimes in Gaza, has provided all forms of support for this regime. The leader of Ansarullah Yemen said: America and Israel, both are the arms of global Zionism that have targeted the Islamic Ummah and the human society with their savage plots.

He also referred to the support of Western countries for the Zionist regime in continuing its crimes against the Palestinian people and said: Britain, which played a role in the establishment of the Zionist regime from the beginning, continues to support the Zionist regime today. Even some European countries, such as France, Italy and Germany, which have a darker and more criminal history, have supported the Zionists. Sayyid Abdul-Malik declared: The regimes and governments that support the Zionist regime have a very dark history of committing crimes and are known for their moral and value bankruptcy. He referred to the responsibility of the Islamic world to confront the crimes of the Zionists against the Palestinian people and said: The Islamic world has a great responsibility and this responsibility is especially on the shoulders of the Arab countries that are considered the heart of the Islamic world. The Islamic world and the Arab countries have a responsibility to seriously and sincerely support the Palestinian people.[4]
