“Houthi” announces the targeting of 4 American and Israeli ships in the Gulf of Aden

Yemen – The Yemeni Houthi group announced, yesterday, Wednesday, the implementation of 4 military operations against American and Israeli ships in the Gulf of Aden.

This came in a televised statement by the military spokesman for the Houthi forces, Yahya Saree.

Saree said, “The armed forces (the group’s forces) carried out 4 military operations this morning in the Gulf of Aden.”

He explained that the attacks “targeted two Israeli ships, (MSC Darwin) and (MSC Jena).”

It also targeted “the American ship Yorktown, and another American warship (its name was not mentioned).”

He added, “Israeli and American ships were targeted with a number of naval missiles and drones.”

He continued: “Our operations in the Red Sea, the Arab Sea, and the Indian Ocean will continue until the (Israeli) aggression stops and the siege on Gaza is lifted.”

As of 17:30 (UTG), there was no comment from the American or Israeli sides in this regard.

“In solidarity with Gaza,” which has been facing a devastating Israeli war since October 7, 2023, the Houthis have targeted, with missiles and drones, Israeli cargo ships or those linked to them in the Red and Arab Bahrain.

With Washington and London intervening through a coalition that launched strikes on Houthi positions in Yemen, and tensions took an escalating turn last January, the Houthi group announced that it now considered all American and British ships among its military targets.

Recently, the group said it would expand its strikes to “include enemy-linked ships passing in the Indian Ocean via the Cape of Good Hope route.”
