Yemen’s Ansar Allah seizes Israeli ship in Red Sea
On November 19, the Yemeni naval forces have seized the car carrier GALAXY LEADER ship.
In a statement about the seizure of this ship, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, said: “In line with the implementation of the instructions of our leader “Seyed Abdul Malik Badr al-Din al-Houthi” and in response to the requests of the great people of Yemen and all free people and based on religious, human and moral responsibility, for the oppressed Palestinian nation and their cruel siege and the continuation of the horrific and heinous killings of the Palestinian people, the Yemeni Navy carried out a military operation in the Red Sea, the result of which was the seizure of an Israeli ship and its transfer to the coast of Yemen.”
Brigadier General Saree added asked all countries whose nationals work in the Red Sea to refrain from any joint work or cooperation with Israeli ships or ships affiliated with the Israelis.
The armed forces of Yemen also emphasized that Israel is a threat to the security, stability of the region and international corridors, and Yemen will continue military operations against this regime until the end of their aggression on the Gaza Strip and the heinous crimes of Israel against the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
The Galaxy Leader is a cargo ship with a Bahamas flag (from Latin American countries) that transports vehicle cargo. According to Hebrew media reports, part of this ship belongs to a Zionist company owned by a Jewish businessman named Abraham Rami Ungar. Forbes ranked Ungar as one of the 100 richest people in Israel, with a net worth of $3.2 billion.
The seizure of the Israeli ship by Ansar Allah can be considered the beginning of the naval war between the resistance groups and Israel. Israel is currently engaged in the three fronts of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and the north of Palestine, and is unable to fully respond to Hezbollah’s ground attacks in the northern axis and Yemen’s air and sea attacks. Therefore, Yemen’s actions play an important role in putting pressure on America and stopping ground operations in the north of the Gaza Strip.
