Yemen’s Houthis targeted 107 Ships Since November 2023

Yemen’s Houthis said that they had targeted 107 ships since the start of Israel’s offensive on the Gaza Strip.

Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, the group’s leader, said that his fighters had carried out attacks against eight ships in the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean.

Houthis said they had launched 33 ballistic missiles and winged drones this week.

Houthis have targeted cargo ships in the Red Sea owned or operated by Israeli companies or transporting goods to and from Israel.

They claim to act in solidarity with the People of Gaza, as thousands of Palestinians, including infants, children, and women, have been killed.

Tensions escalated after US-UK led airstrikes against Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen.

Hence, Houthis declared all American and British ships to be legitimate military targets.

The Red Sea is a strategic maritime trade route, and since the Houthi Attacks, many ships have taken a long detour around Africa.

Some shipping companies have cancelled their services to Israel as well.
