US not in de facto proxy war with Iran, Biden says

US President Joe Biden told reporters he does not think the United States is in a de facto proxy war with Iran, claiming that US deals with violence in the Middle East.

"No," Biden said on Friday when asked if the United States is in a de facto proxy war with Iran, Sputnik reports.

Biden also said Iran does not want a war with the United States.

Iran has already rejected accusations from Western countries over Tehran's alleged involvement in the Houthi attacks on merchant ships in the Red Sea.

In addition, Iran emphasized that resistance groups in the Middle East, such as the Houthis, do not receive any instructions from Iran.

The United States and UK attacked Ansarullah targets across Yemen early Friday in response to the Yemeni popular Resistance movement's strikes on vessels linked to the Israeli regime, which has brought the Gaza Strip under a genocidal war.

Ansarullah said the attacks targeted the capital city of Sana'a as well as the western cities of al-Hudaydah, Sa'ada, and Dhamar, blaming "American aggression with British participation."

The Houthis threatened that the United States and the United Kingdom would pay a "high price" for the attack. The group previously announced their plans to prevent the passage of ships linked to Israeli companies or bound for Israel in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea until the country stops genocide in the Gaza Strip.
