Yemen's Houthis say they have hijacked an Israeli ship in the Red Sea
Yemen's Houthis said they had hijacked an Israeli ship sailing in the Red Sea. The ship was flying the flag of the Bahamas. The Arab press reports this.
The Houthis began to fulfill their promise to capture all Israeli ships passing through the Red Sea and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, announcing that they were able to capture the Galaxy Leader, a ro-ro ro-ro vessel flying the flag of the Bahamas. The Houthi press service is expected to make a statement on this matter in the near future.
Meanwhile, as the Israeli press reports, this ship is not Israeli, it is a ship sailing from Turkey and to India with an international civilian crew, among which there is not a single Israeli. On the other hand, the ship belongs to an Israeli businessman who leased it to a Japanese company.
The ship seized by the Houthis belongs to the Ray Shipping company of Israeli businessman Rami Unger, but is leased to a Japanese company. There are no Israelis on board. All crew members are Japanese
- writes the Israeli press.
Earlier, the Yemeni Houthis said they would seize and sink all Israeli ships passing through the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandeb Strait. Thus, the Houthis support the Hamas movement, which is fighting against Israel. On the other hand, these actions will lead to Israel’s “partners” introducing several warships into the Red Sea, which will accompany civilian ships. At the same time, the Houthis have ground-based installations with Iranian-made anti-ship missiles that could test the missile defenses of American ships.
