A website run by the public relations department of the armed forces of the Yemen-based Houthi Ansar Allah movement published an article claiming its radio station gave Palestinian resistance factions a $400,000 donation, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (MEMRI-JTTM).

The listeners of the radio station, SAM FM, contributed the sum during the “Al-Quds [Jerusalem] is Closer Than Ever” fundraising campaign, said Ansar Allah leader Abdul-Malik Badr al-Din during fighting between terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip and Israel in May.

Minister of Telecommunications and Information Technology, Mesfer Abdullah al-Numair, stated that by June 29, the bank account at the post office contained a total of 607 million Yemeni rials ($2.4 million).

On June 6, the Hamas representative in Yemen, Mo’az Abu Shamala, presented an honorary plaque to Muhammad ‘Ali al-Houthi.
