Yemen's Houthis claim attacks on two more cargo ships in the Red Sea

Two civilian vessels were attacked by Yemen's Ansar Allah movement, also known as the Houthis, in the Red Sea. This was reported by representatives of the movement itself.

According to the Houthis, they attacked the oil tanker Swan Atlantic and the cargo ship MSC Clara, owned by an Israeli company. In connection with the Houthi attacks, the British company British Petroleum decided to suspend oil supplies through the Red Sea for security reasons.



Note that the Yemeni Houthis have intensified attacks on civilian ships as a response to the Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip. The Ansar Allah movement, based on Yemen's Zaydi Shiites, expressed solidarity with the Palestinian Hamas movement. After this, they launched from the territory of Yemen Drones towards the Israeli port of Eilat. The Houthis then moved on to seize ships. Vessels hijacked by the movement were towed to Houthi-controlled ports in Yemen.

It is noteworthy that the Houthis attack not only Israeli ships, but also ships from other countries traveling to or from Israeli ports. However, ships flying the flags of third countries may belong to companies with a significant share of Israeli capital.

To ensure the safety of navigation in the Red Sea, the United States is trying to create a special task force, which plans to include warships of both the United States itself and its allies, including regional ones. However, the Houthis have already warned Saudi Arabia and the UAE that if they show solidarity with Israel and the United States, they will face renewed attacks on oil and gas facilities. Earlier, we recall that the Arab monarchies seemed to have made peace with the Houthis and Iran through the mediation of China.

    It is surprising that ships belonging to an Israeli company went through the strait after the incidents took place. Is Russian “maybe” not alien to Jews? laughing

      So half of the Israelis are “Hussian people”! And they don’t deceive their own people!

    It would be very inconvenient for Arab monarchies to help the states and Jews officially, even Muslims. It would be problematic to launder later.

    Now the suppression resource needs to be allocated to the Houthis. People spit on the hegemon’s shoe more and more often. I wonder who the Amers will try to get involved in punishing the Houthis?

      Information flashed that Egypt and Saudi Arabia. But, most likely, you will have to take the rap yourself and from a distance. They will launch a dozen or two missiles at hospitals and schools, smash a couple of bulldozers, and then they will calm down.

      The Houthis are great, but the Jordanians are the weak link of the Arabs, they are struggling under the hegemon right and left. Cargoes are pumped for the murderers of Arabs...

    I studied at the university (85-91), with almost all the Arabs, except the aspic ones, of course. Yemenis were different from everyone else. They are the best. People who keep their word are an honor for them, not an empty word. The rest, including (and especially the Palestinians), in my understanding of a young man in the late 80s, are complete devils, with rare exceptions

    It is curious that all these attacks are practically not condemned in the United States. I remember what a noise there was when an American drone was shot down in the Persian Gulf - the noise was all over the world. Ships are attacked here, even American military ones, and... silence.
    The US apparently understands. that it’s already dangerous to “go too far with the poker.” If they also launch an attack on the Houthis, then they will hold on to the Arab world. as in the case of Hamas, it may no longer work out.

      The AUG and a bunch of allied ships are already on their way. Therefore, everything is in progress, they will come and I think they will actively bomb.

      They are not discussed because it is embarrassing. They are the main defenders of free navigation. With this sauce they did wonders in the Taiwan Strait, and throughout the rest of the world.

      And here they are thrown into the dirt for the whole world to see. It's the same story with military bases in Iraq and Syria.

      That's why they can't answer. But I don’t have the strength to answer properly. In the end, they chase their troughs, but in order to scare them a little. No matter how they drown something there. Otherwise it will be a disgrace to the whole world

      This is the patrimony of Iran, so everything that the Houthis give to those responsible for inciting regional wars is kindly provided to them by Tehran, both in finished form and in the form of components, from which the skilled hands of the Houthis collect long-range gifts. First of all, we need to provide our troops with everything they need. hi

        They forgot about the data that Iran also gives to the Houthis. In terms of whose ship it is, what port it is going to and whether it should be touched. The West has imposed sanctions on Iran, and Iran is currently taking advantage of the situation to essentially regulate traffic through the Suez Canal in its favor. And in favor of the allies accordingly.

          Well, let’s put it this way Andrey, the Somali pirates haven’t gone anywhere, they just began to act more systematically, working out specific tasks of their curators in relation to certain carriers based on commercial interests, but the Houthis really demonstrated that they are quite professional and substantive, they can work on any commercial vessel from a container ship to a tanker, both by capturing and landing troops from a helicopter, and by inflicting “mutilations” with missiles and drones based on political interests. The fact that the Houthis, in a very short time, were able to force the largest carriers to abandon sea transportation along traditional routes and cause an increase in the cost of shipping traffic by 2,5 billion dollars per day is an indisputable fact and at the same time alarming, since it clearly will not remain without response and will entail an expansion of military operations in the region, with the involvement of mattresses and co., and an increase in energy prices, which in general is not bad for us. hi

      To begin with, we must not forget that Hamas and the Houthis are terrorists and non-governmental organizations. Well, yes, let's also provide support to terrorists. I understand a little that Israel is a star-striped instrument of pressure on the Islamic world, and if the minke whales get their way there, they will return their complete dominance there - they don’t need oil there, but control over oil in order to be able to put pressure on their geopolitical opponents with the help of a faucet with oil. This is all understandable, but Hamas started it all arbitrarily, the Iranians did not give the go-ahead, so in general everything is not easy there and even “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” does not work there.

    However, Netonyahu and Co. still calculated all the moves of their combination with Palestine. The Republicans will not have long conversations with the Houthis, but given the economic and social situation in the United States itself, no one needs a new war in the Middle East. But the Israelis also clearly overdid it, if you do not take into account the pre-planned scenario that failed with Ukraine and Russia. A major Middle Eastern war is at stake. 3 US AUG plus ships still being prepared for shipment from the USA to the Middle East for a reason. I am tormented by vague doubts about the start of the work of the US military-industrial complex at the numerous requests of radio listeners, which, according to some Democrats and Republicans, can somewhat improve the economic situation of the US and EU countries. It may be nonsense, but when the military-industrial complex starts working, a completely different policy begins recourse request
