Houthi simulation video shows raid that leaves IDF leaders dead, soldiers kidnapped

A video published Sunday by Yemenâs Iran-backed Houthi rebel group showed soldiers drilling for a raid on an Israeli âcommand and control centerâ and taking soldiers hostage. Footage of the raid, dubbed âYemen is the Pillar Support of Palestineâ according to media reports, showed artillery strikes on barren mountains as well as a squad of drones dropping explosives on Israeli and American flags, some of which were covering small structures. Commandos, some carrying Palestinian flags, were then seen raiding what are meant to be makeshift Israeli military posts, including taking down a âpillboxâ made of thin canvas, shooting down surveillance cameras and flags, and tearing apart tents meant to represent military structures, before blowing up the ersatz base.

The Houthis have released chilling video showing them carrying out a simulation exercise of an assault on an Israeli “command and control center,” where they assassinate IDF generals and take soldiers hostage.

Israeli forces also posted footage of a Hamas training camp — “with models simulating entrance gates of Israeli kibbutzim, military bases and IDF armored vehicles’’ — that was used to prep for the Palestinian terror group’s Israel massacre Oct. 7.

In the Houthi video, titled “Yemen is the Pillar Support of Palestine,” the Iran-backed terrorists show missiles being fired and drones dropping bombs on buildings with Israeli and American flags, the Times of Israel reported.

Militants carrying Palestinian flags also are seen raiding an Israeli “pillbox,” or outpost, made of canvas, shooting down its surveillance cameras and destroying its tents.

Three people dressed as Israel Defense Forces soldiers — including one sitting at a table lined with computers — are captured at gunpoint.

The video, posted to X on Feb. 3, appears to show Houthi forces capturing and killing top Israeli generals and leaders, too, before blowing up the faux IDF base.

Last month, the Yemen-based rebels released a similar video showing their commandos entering a mock Israeli town, where they shot at a poster of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and captured men dressed as ultra-Orthodox Jews, according to the outlet.

The IDF video, released Sunday, shows Israeli forces at Hamas’s abandoned “Al-Qadsia” compound, one of “the main bases where Hamas terrorists trained for October 7,” according to the military posting on X.

“The base also contained the offices of senior Hamas officers like Mohammad Sinwar, rocket storage facilities and tunnel shafts leading to underground tunnel routes,” the IDF said.

Sinwar is the brother of the Hamas chief in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, who oversaw the October massacre and is considered Public Enemy No. 1 by Israel.

In terms of the Houthis, the Shia Islamist group has launched missile and drone attacks at Israel since the beginning of the Jewish nation’s war with Hamas on Oct. 7, but most of the weaponry has failed to reach its targets, with many rockets downed by aerial-defense systems.

Sinwar is the brother of the Hamas chief in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, who oversaw the October massacre and is considered Public Enemy No. 1 by Israel.

The rebels began targeting ships in the Red Sea in November to avenge Israel’s offensive in Gaza – but they have often attacked vessels with no clear ties to Israel, endangering shipping in a vital route for global trade.

The US and UK have launched airstrikes against the Houthis since January in response to their action in the Red Sea.

On Sunday, American forces struck Houthi anti-ship and land attack cruise missiles in Yemen, US Central Command said, a day after joint US-UK strikes against the group.

On Sunday, Houthi spokesman Yahya Saree said the airstrikes “will not deter us” and retaliation after the recent operations, the Times of Israel reported.
