Yemen's Houthis report a missile attack on a British tanker sailing in the Red Sea

The tanker Pollux, owned by a British company, was attacked while sailing through the Red Sea. This was announced by the official representative of the Ansar Allah movement (Houthis), Yahya Saria, as quoted by the international news agency Reuters.

According to Saria, missiles were fired at the tanker. The Houthis have not reported the consequences of the strike on the ship. The British side has not yet commented on the information.



The Ansar Allah movement began to attack American and British ships, as well as ships of companies associated with the United States and Great Britain flying the flags of third countries, in response to the military operation launched by Washington and London against the Yemeni Houthis. Let us recall that the American-British coalition periodically launches missile strikes on Yemeni territory, declaring the “defeat” of military installations of the Yemeni Houthis.

The formal reason for the start of a military operation against the Houthis was the latter’s actions against Israeli ships in the Red Sea. The Ansar Allah movement began attacking ships of Israeli-linked companies in solidarity with the Palestinian Hamas movement's fight against the Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip. In addition, the Houthis tried to launch Drones towards the Israeli port of Eilat.

Then the United States and Great Britain launched the operation, ostensibly to ensure the security of free navigation in the Red Sea, but in fact, in order to protect Israel from the risk of more active actions on the part of the Yemeni Houthis. Previously, the Houthis stated that they do not threaten the shipping of Russia, China and other states that are not involved in aggression against Yemen or the Palestinian people.

      Fuck the same Houthis, Hamas and Hezbollah will just calm down... Yes..., they won’t be able to fight directly with the armies of Israel and the Anglo-Saxons, but they can easily do all sorts of “big dirty tricks”... Thank them very much!!! Let them continue to distract our and their enemies from our NWO (war) on the outskirts... am

      For now with missiles... But when high-speed UUV boats appear, then the warships of the Angos-Saxons will be in trouble...

    Yemen's Houthis reported a missile attack on a British tanker... in the Red Sea

    We would like to supply the Houthis with newer missiles to attack the warships of the British, who are always messing with us in Ukraine.

      When (and if) our superiors decide so, then there will be deliveries. Why bother whining about it every time there is news about the Houthis?

        Dear Kot Alexandrovich,
        1. Everyone who leaves comments here is not whining, but expressing a certain position.
        2. Constant repetition of the same thing sooner or later leads to a certain result. The ancient Greeks knew this. Therefore, allow me to leave comments and additions without being guided by your attitude.

      After the British handed over the Storm Shadow missiles and Challengers with uranium shells to the Dill, we have every right to take such a step, so to speak, as an alaverdi.

    A huge request to the site administration. Please check the information. Tanker Rollux.imo 9243320 owner OCEAFRONT MARTIME CO SA (Greece) operator SEA TRADE MARINE SA (registration is constantly changing, there was Monrovia and Singapore). On January 24, it loaded with oil in Novorossiysk (Russian, Kazakh unknown) for some reason called at the ports of Turkey, on February 26 it was supposed to unload at the port of Paradip, India. But in the Red Sea it received minor damage (what is still unknown), the crew was not injured, it is underway. This is in no way an English tanker.

        Many people are confused, information about the incident in the Red Sea is mainly provided by the English navigation safety company "Ambrey", although it has been American for several years (fully). They are encrypted. bullyWhen reprinting, suddenly an English ship owner appears out of nowhere. Who are the Houthis working for? Which uncle. They have now caused us colossal damage. Idiots.

            When our oil traffic from Novorossiysk stops due to exorbitant insurance and freight, then we’ll see who is right. The Indians, for no apparent reason, started buying Sokol oil for shipment in the Far East. Should we drive a tanker from Novorossiysk around Africa to India? lol

              As a Zionist, you think about money all the time. It is not good to think about your own losses when it comes to helping Palestine.

          "Tandem" for the purpose of paying insurance claims. English topic on the issue of swimming “from there”. We weren’t like “there”, and we also didn’t see “anyone” or “anyone” “there” due to the presence of thick fog over the surface of the sea... recourse request lol

            Two weeks ago, the cost of insurance only for passage through the Red Sea became 1% of the cost of the vessel. This has dramatically changed traffic. Also, the cargo must be insured. Therefore, the United States is engaged in ICD off the coast of Yemen. hiI noticed that as soon as the tanker was hit, the tanker was immediately transporting oil from Russia or petroleum products to Western Smith. And this is not without reason.

              It will be hot in the Middle East in the coming years. In a nutshell. ICD alone cannot do without direct surgical intervention. By the way, it’s not without reason that Austin’s bladder failed. Scale will not fall off the walls of the vessel in vain... request

                But the bastard doesn’t leave his job, he can’t set such an example, and Biden can’t fire Austin for health reasons. They have a vicious circle from which it’s only possible to get out if Trump “comes” and then it’s 50/50.
