A meme shared to social media shows two photos — on the left a picture of a helicopter approaching a cargo ship, with the heading “How it started”.
On the right is an image of a huge explosion at night, beneath the heading “How it’s going”. The posts, such as here and here on Facebook, and here on X (formerly Twitter), add the comment: “Did the Houthis really think this through?”.
