The British Navy reported details of an explosion near a ship off the coast of Yemen

The photo is illustrative.


In the area of ​​the Yemeni coast, near the port of Moha, an explosion occurred near one of the ships at sea. This was reported by the Office of Maritime Trade Operations of the British Navy, publishing a corresponding post on the social network.



Prior to this, the British department only reported a certain “incident” off the coast of Yemen, without disclosing details. Now the first information has appeared about what really happened.

According to the British Navy, the captain of the ship reported an explosion about 100 meters from the ship, on the starboard side. Currently, the ship and crew are safe, the British department said. There is also no information about any damage to the vessel.


The Royal Navy's Office of Maritime Trade has advised ships to proceed with increased caution along the coast of Yemen. The fact is that the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement (Houthis) is carrying out attacks on ships associated with Israel, Great Britain and the United States. At the same time, ships can fly the flags of third countries.

The Houthis explain the attacks on ships associated with Israel with solidarity with the resistance of the Palestinian Hamas movement to the Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip, and the attacks on ships associated with the United States and Great Britain - with the need for a tough response to the aggressive actions of the Washington-led coalition. Let us recall that earlier the armed forces of the United States and Great Britain carried out a series of attacks on military targets in Yemen.

        Why can't they sit quietly on Baker Street?

        Oh, who do you actually mean ( hi ):
        Sherlock Holmes - Baker Street 221b,
        The first permanent exhibition at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum,
        In 1940, Baker Street became the site of the Special Operations Executive, a British intelligence and sabotage service active during the Second World War. ))

        But why you can’t sit quietly on 10 Downing Street is a question to be answered!
        Apparently they confuse the addresses so that the rocket doesn’t arrive!!!

        Patamushta they are so restless, they itch everywhere with worry for others.
        Even if they are asked not to worry.
        As a former American admiral with a Greek surname - Stavridis, he is very sad that the Houthis do not fire at Russian ships in the Red Sea. Give him/them free rein, they would start their hunt for everything Russian all over the world.
        True, they often act on the sly or do it with someone else’s hands.

    It’s a pity that a couple of missiles didn’t fly into the English warship!

      Iran has the opportunity to transfer anti-ship missiles to the Houthis, but apparently there is no desire yet, otherwise this British vessel would sink to the bottom.

    However, despite the menacing statements of the Houthis and their attempts, not a single British or US warship sank. And it's not even damaged.

      Well, yes, yes... The Anglo-Saxons are invincible! Or do the Houthis simply not have the weapons they need? Until they have normal anti-ship missiles, they will only make the arrogant Britons and Yankels nervous - also bread!

      -not a single British or American warship sank. And it's not even damaged.
      The Yankees have satellite and aviation reconnaissance, which are able to detect enemy missiles at the initial stage of their flight (even launch) at a considerable distance. There is enough time to make a decision.
      Moreover, they have a three-echelon air defense/missile defense system - large, medium and short radius.

        Et malgré tous ces avantages que vous citez : détection dès le début du vol, suffisamment de temps, défense anti missile à trois niveau : grande moyenne et courte porté ...
        Les missiles de moyenne qualité des Houthis arrivent à "une centaine de mètres" d'un navire Britannique...100 m pour la vitesse d'un missile c'est plus près que "courte" il va falloir que les Britanniques investissent dans une défense à...très courte portée :-)

    After 10 days ago, an LNG tanker from the United States with a cargo of 120 thousand passed through Suez and the Red Sea, something began to become clearer for me. It’s just not clear who is the owner of this economic project. I wouldn’t be surprised that the Houthis are selling indulgences. lol Like Somali pirates.

    If Yemen is at war with NATO, then it is our ally! Why haven’t anti-ship missile systems been delivered to the Houthis yet??? Or is Washington not telling?

      How? The sea and air are under NATO control.

        Whether you like - through Syria and the Saudis, or through Iran and Oman...
        Russian ships are not detained...
        The transporter will also fly by...

      Counter question: why do North Korea supply us with missiles and shells?
      I think there will be one answer to both (yours and mine) questions hi
      And Washington has nothing to do with it

    100 meters from the ship, something exploded there, of course, if the captain, with his drunken eyes, didn’t imagine it, well, just a sea of ​​information laughing

    One major report that has come out is that Eritrea is willing to expand its relationship with Iran to a strategic level.

    This was stated by Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Saleh Mohammed.

    Such an unexpected decision could greatly change the balance of power in the Middle East region and strengthen Iran's control over Bab el-Mandeb and the entrance to the Red Sea.

    True, these are just words for now, and moreover, we must not forget that currently in Eritrea, on the territory of the Dahlak archipelago, there is a secret Israeli military reconnaissance base and also a wiretapping base on the highest peak of the country, Amba Mossino.

    No matter how events develop there, there is still such an interesting pirouette from Eritrea.
