The Royal Navy reported an explosion off the coast of Yemen

An explosion occurred near the port of Hodeidah in Yemen. This was reported by the Office of Maritime Trade Operations of the British Navy.

According to the British Navy, the explosion occurred near the port of Hodeidah in the Red Sea. It is not reported what the incident was related to. But before that, British sailors had already reported two explosions near a civilian ship in the Hodeidah area.



In the Red Sea, in recent months, the Yemeni Houthis, members of the Ansar Allah movement, supported by local Zaydi Shiites and patronized by Iran, have seriously intensified their activities. Tehran itself denies any involvement in the actions of the Houthis.


The Houthis attack civilian ships traveling to or from Israel. At first, they were going to attack exclusively Israeli ships, but now ships flying the flags of third countries are also being attacked.

In response to the actions of the Houthis, the United States is trying to create a special naval coalition that would supposedly ensure the safety of civilian shipping in the Red Sea. In addition to its European allies, the United States also wants to involve Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE, in this coalition. Washington needs this so that the coalition looks like it was created by all countries, including Islamic ones, and not just by representatives of the “collective West.”

In this regard, the Yemeni Houthis have already warned the Arab monarchies of the consequences for them if they try to “take the side of Israel.” The Houthis explain their actions by solidarity with the people of the Gaza Strip fighting against Israeli troops.

      The point of no return has been passed, so soon the British will receive a surprise visit
      they have already begun to protect their 2 aircraft carriers
      It’s a pity that the Houthis will NOT be given the Bastion anti-ship missile system with the Zircon anti-ship missile system
      overall a good idea
      - with pirate submarines of some kind of popular front for the liberation of Alamumba in the Atlantic with SLCMs and PLUR Caliber, anti-ship missiles Zircon, torpedoes Fizik and Shkval

    So the entire Bab-el-Mandeb Strait is the continuous coastline of Yemen. Wherever you place a rocket launcher, passage will be a big question. And if, following the commandments of the outskirts and the Hamas forces, they disperse and camouflage for the time being, then the dogs will dig up the desert with shells, which are no longer enough.

    I really hope that one of the British, Americans or Jews took off into the air. This pack of the chosen ones is constantly disrupting the whole world, it’s time to go to heaven, or fail to hell - show your signs of being chosen. We're fed up with these Judaizing Anglo-Saxons.

      I wonder where the Houthis get their missiles, they probably make them themselves

    The Houthis attack civilian ships traveling to or from Israel. At first they were going to attack exclusively Israeli ships, but now ships flying the flags of third countries are also being attacked.

    to date they have attacked 23 ships, only 2 of them had a very distant relationship with Israel (the companies had Israelis among their shareholders), and only one was heading to Israel, the remaining 20 had nothing to do with Israel at all, but the Houthis did poorly at school and It has not yet been discovered that they inflicted the most severe damage on Egypt, KSA, Jordan, Turkey, the UAE, Bahrain and Oman. Egypt is generally in a quiet rage, while quietly, KSA recently concluded a long truce with the Houthis, and the Houthis promised not to interfere with KSA trade , but they can easily get confused and drive KSA into a rage again, all the Arab countries listed above do not have much love for Hamas and the Houthis, but such solidarity with the Palestinians can backfire on the Houthis

      And what will prevent the Houthis from establishing feedback with those whom they are ready to let through.

        and who knows, so far they have not been able to do this, probably because they do not trust each other, Egypt, KSA, the UAE have recently openly fought with the Houthis, and they understand that gas for the Houthis is an excuse to annoy their recent enemies

    In theory, you can visit the Britons through Algeria - geranium will handle the journey to Gibraltar.
