Yemeni Houthi rebels shoot down US drone

Houthi rebels in Yemen have released video footage and photos of what they claim is an American MQ-9 Reaper being shot down and crashing in Yemen. US officials said the Reaper had been downed in the Red Sea by what was likely an Iranian anti-air missile fired by Houthi rebels. According to an earlier report of another incident, Iranian Revolutionary Guards aimed an anti-air missile against an American UAV tracking them in the vicinity of the oil tankers that were attacked in the Gulf of Oman.

      including children?

      In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’.

      When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction.”

      When haShem will take the kingdom from Amalek He will make the land desolate.

      Tehillah 97 1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
