The Houthis have banned ships linked to Israel, the US and the UK from entering the Red Sea.

Any civilian vessels associated with Israel, the US and the UK should not enter the Red Sea. Otherwise, they will be subject to shelling. This statement was made by the Yemeni movement Ansar Allah (Houthis), reports the Reuters news agency.

Previously, the Houthis only prohibited Israeli ships from traveling through the Red Sea, as well as ships heading to Israeli ports. But now the list of countries whose ships the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement prohibits from being in the Red Sea has expanded. The United States and Great Britain were included in the list of countries because they began aggression against Yemen, launching attacks on the territory of this sovereign state.



The Houthis note that the ban applies not only to the Red Sea, but also to the nearby Arabian Sea and Gulf of Aden. The movement has sufficiently serious capabilities to attack ships with missiles and drones.

Earlier it became known that the Houthis attacked the British cargo ship Islander, flying the Palauan flag in the Gulf of Aden. The ship was attacked by two missiles launched from Yemen. After this, it was forced to sharply change its course. The extent of damage on this vessel has not yet been reported.

This is the second attack on British ships in recent days. Less than a week ago, Ansar Allah attacked another British ship, the Rubymar, in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait. The crew managed to escape, but the ship itself almost sank.

          Iran will supply everything for them. It also has reliable supply channels.
          But we would like Iran to expand the range of supplies. First of all, anti-ship missiles.
          By the way, there are probably still plenty of Soviet ones in the warehouses. Rather than dispose of it, it is better to hand it over to Iran. It can even be free.

                  The initial thesis was that they should not form into a PMC structure like Wagner, since the Wagners were dispersed after the famous march. They already have everything from the Persians, although an extra flow of weapons from Moscow would not hurt them.
                  Maybe they showed their attitude towards the reindeer herder’s rivals?
                  And this is according to Prigozhin?

    Well, insurance for ships from the above-mentioned countries will skyrocket, and carrying them under military escort is also a problem. not cheap. On the other hand, some shipowners may make money. For example, purely hypothetically, a container ship from China goes to Rottendam and then to Hamburg. The ship is in no way connected with prohibitions, and the cargo according to the papers belongs purely to EU offices. Then some of the containers in the port are stupidly reloaded onto other ships that go to the British. It is incredibly difficult to track, since ships simply carry container numbers, and their recipients are “clean.” Loading and unloading etc. goes stupidly by numbers. Naturally, this route is inconvenient and leads to an increase in transportation costs, but we, and Iran before us, use such schemes to the fullest. Now here are the crap ones. let them think.

    International taxes? Or the cost of navigating someone's waters?
    But if the owner is known... Absurd. From my point of view.

      Well, something like this.
      Benefits of registering a flag of convenience
      low tax rates;
      low level of mandatory minimum wage;
      low registration fees;
      minimum formalities;
      extremely short (compared to others) registration period;
      no requirements regarding the citizenship of crew members;
      the possibility of commercial operation of a vessel by a non-resident from outside the flag state.

      The law is strong, but it's law. The owners of offshore companies are also well-known, which does not prevent them from looking clean in the eyes of the tax service. With reservations, of course, but it works.

    I admire the Houthis, they dictate their rules to the entire Western world, yet they do not have a million-strong army and a military-industrial complex comparable to the Russian one.
    Why is it not possible to introduce a ban on Ukrainian ports and airfields in the same way? Why did the flow of weapons continue to continue? Well, it’s logical that when there is trade with a party to the conflict, then any trade operations should be prohibited or very dangerous?
    Doesn't the wording allow it?
