Militants backed by Iran have stormed a U.S. embassy in Yemen.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The State Department is working to secure the release of several hostages taken by Iran-backed terrorists after they stormed the U.S. embassy facility in Sana’a, Yemen, U.S. officials told the Washington Free Beacon early Thursday.

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. The raid comes just five days after the Houthis kidnapped Yemeni nationals who work for the U.S. embassy.

The State Department confirmed to the Free Beacon that the Yemeni staffers are being held hostage 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.”

The State Department has said that they are concerned about the security of the compound and want the Houthi revels to return all seized property.

No, “we” are not doing nothing. Kamala has been sent over there to “take the edge off” the aggressiveness of those terrorists. She apparently has a lot of experience at that.

Time to invite the terrorists to an LGBTQ tea party?
