In continuation of military operations in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea, the Yemeni army launched attacks with a number of missiles and suicide drones on a US army destroyer and two unauthorized ships that violated the ban on sailing towards the Israeli-occupied ports.

Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesperson for the Yemeni Armed Forces, announced in a statement on the evening of June 16 that in support of the oppressed people of Palestine and in response to the atrocities committed against our brothers in Gaza and the aggressions of the United States and Britain against our country, Yemeni missile and naval forces carried out two military operations in the Red Sea. The details of these operations are as follows:

– The first operation targeted a US destroyer with a number of ballistic missiles.

– The second operation targeted the ship Captain Paris with a number of naval missiles, as the company owning this ship violated the ban on entering the ports of occupied Palestine.

– The drone forces also carried out a third military operation targeting the ship Happy Condor in the Arabian Sea using drones. This operation was carried out after the company owning the ship violated the ban on entering the ports of occupied Palestine. Fortunately, these three operations successfully achieved their objectives.

At the end, Brigadier General Saree emphasized the continuation of Yemeni Armed Forces operations in support of the people of Palestine and in response to the attacks of the United States and Britain until the end of the aggression as well as the lifting of the siege on the people of Gaza.

The ship Captain Paris is a crude oil tanker operating under the Maltese flag since 2014. The ship was heading from Port Said in Egypt towards the port of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The Happy Condor ship is a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tanker operating under the Danish flag since 2008. The ship was moving from France towards the port of Mesaieed in Qatar.

According to statistics gathered by the IWN, the recent attacks by the Yemeni army on these ships mark the 116th-118th formal attacks by the Yemeni Armed Forces on unauthorized ships (Israeli, American, British, and their affiliated ships) in the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Mediterranean Sea.
