By Henry Ridgwell (VOA) - Yemen Fighting Intensifies as Fears Grow of Sectarian Conflict, Public Domain,

As Biden-Harris desperately continues to appease Iran and get it to return to the failed Obama-Biden 2015 nuclear deal, Iran responds with even more militia attacks against the United States and its allies. Recently Iranian backed militants attempted to assassinate Iraq’s prime minister, and now Iranian-back Houthi terrorists have stormed the U.S. embassy facility in Sana’a, Yemen.

In the first attack, President Biden avoided blaming Iran, in this attack Team Biden is also ignoring the Iranian connection.

Ironically, in February, Team Biden removed the Houthis from its foreign terrorist watch list and announced the end of U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition’s offensive operations, pledging diplomatic efforts instead. It then named diplomat Timothy Lenderking as special envoy to Yemen.

There were no Americans at the compound when it was breached since the American ambassador and key staff were relocated to Saudi Arabia in 2015. However, local Yemeni U.S. embassy staff remained, and many were taken hostage.

According to the Washington Free Beacon:

A group of Houthi rebels reportedly stormed the U.S. compound on Wednesday seeking “large quantities of equipment and materials,” according to regional reports translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute [MEMRI]. The raid comes just five days after the Houthis kidnapped Yemeni nationals who work for the U.S. embassy.

“The alleged raid comes after the Houthis kidnapped three Yemeni nationals affiliated with the U.S. Embassy from one of the employee’s private residences in Sana’a on November 5,” according to MEMRI. At least 22 other Yemenis were kidnapped by the Houthis in recent weeks, “most of whom worked on the security staff guarding the embassy grounds,” according to MEMRI.

The Free Beacon continued by reporting that:

The State Department confirmed to the Free Beacon that the Yemeni staffers are being detained without explanation and that the Iran-backed militants stole property after breaching the American facility in Sana’a, which housed U.S. embassy staff prior to the suspension of operations there in 2015.

“The United States has been unceasing in its diplomatic efforts to secure their release,” a State Department spokesman told the Free Beacon. “The majority of the detained have been released, but the Houthis continue to detain additional Yemeni employees of the embassy.”

Those still being held are “detained without explanation and we call for their immediate release,” the State Department spokesman said.

Among those who were kidnapped and held by the Houthis include a former embassy employee, an economic officer, and a U.S. Agency for International Development employee, according to MEMRI.

A State Department spokesperson said: “We call on the Houthis to immediately vacate it and return all seized property,” the spokesman said. “The U.S. government will continue its diplomatic efforts to secure the release of our staff and the vacating of our compound, including through our international partners.”

    1. You must know why…because Comrade Biden and the Brandon Progressive Socialist regime have suppressed it. Czechoslovakia 1946… look up the history.

  1. One more failure by the biden administration. So many failures, and msm still telling us they are honest, truthful and unbiased they just fail to report!

  2. Let’s see, we are pledging diplomatic efforts. So, in other words we will arrange a pay off on the condition they play nice in the future and request Iran to come to the table to discuss a nuclear deal. Honestly folks, you would think Biden would get tired of losing instead of pouring water over the frying pan. He continues to disgrace this country every opportunity he gets.

  3. Hope the effort to rescue US Embassy Foreign Nationals in Yemen is better than that of the US Embassy Foreign Nationals in Afghanistan! Our US Embassy Foreign Nationals are the foundation of US Embassies throughout the world and should never be an after thought! President Biden continues like the Obama Administration and forgettable corrupt Secretary Of State Clinton to be abysmal in International Affairs! Apparently he didn’t learn anything despite 40 years in Washington DC but we knew that from his lack of achievements!

    1. This is like when we went from fighting wars based on certain well known and accepted practices to the advent of guerilla warfare, and the take no prisoners mentality. Also, the Geneva Convention has lost any legitimacy, except in a small number of nations. Eventually, even embassies will have no credence. And Joe seems to be okay with all of this decline.

  4. The tratior Biden listening to his bosses and abonding the USA and giving the terrorist more. I wish Biden would neet these treeorist face to face and watch him be even a bigger coward. Can we please hang biden and all of these politician traitors from both sides

  5. CIA wants you to believe that the Irazi Prime Minister was attacked by Iranians. Many credible news reports suggest that the false op was engineered and executed by US.

  6. Joe’s handlers and administration EFF’s up everything they touch. This is just another effed up act to carry on a trend and 100% batting average.

  7. U.S. embassies are soverign U.S. territory. Will Biden act to defend U.S. territory and recover U.S. citizens? If the recent past is an example, the resounding answer is NO! We need a strong leader who will put America and Americans first, not a demented imbecile!

  8. This is the height of ignorance and not caring about America. He needs to be taken out of office immediately. He is constantly putting Americans and our allies in danger. He truly destroying our country and what it stands for. Unbelievable.

  9. What a bunch of F-ing idiots. These terrorists are behaving like today’s Demoncrats. You stand up to them and see say enuf is enuf. ” Senile is as senile does.” Forest Grump

  10. This shows the world just how WILLFULLY IGNORANT LIBERALS are. They saw what the Taliban and ISIS are truly like in the take over of Afghanistan. Yet Pedo Joe trusts these TERRORISTS but since Democraps have their own TERRORISTS(ANTIFA and BLM) they support other TERRORISTS EVERY CHANCE THEY GET.

  11. The only question is: how many billions of our money is the pedo-in-chief going to give Iran to get the embassy out of their hands
