Yemeni Armed Forces Announce New Phase of Targeting Israeli Ships: A Stand Against Aggression
The Armed Forces announced today, Sunday, a new phase of targeting ships of the Zionist enemy entity and those dealing with the entity. The Armed Forces declared in a statement that, stemming from religious, national, and ethical responsibility, and in view of the brutal American-Israeli aggression that the Gaza Strip is subjected to, where daily massacres and genocidal extermination are taking place, and in response to the demands of our Yemeni people and the demands of free peoples and the rescue of our oppressed people in Gaza, it will target all types of the following ships:
- Ships flying the flag of the Zionist entity.
- Ships operated by Israeli companies.
- Ships owned by Israeli companies.
The Yemeni Armed Forces appealed to all countries of the world to withdraw their citizens working within the crews of these ships and to avoid shipping on board or dealing with them, and that it is incumbent on the countries of the world to inform their ships to stay away from these ships.
Yesterday, a prominent source in the Yemeni naval forces confirmed that the naval forces are capable of targeting Israeli ships in the Red Sea or any other place that the Zionist enemy does not expect. The prominent military source pointed out in a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) that the armed forces are about to target all Israeli ships, whether they are heading to occupied Palestine or any other country.
On the 14th of this November, Sayyid Abdulmalik Badr al-Din al-Houthi confirmed in a speech that Yemen is monitoring Zionist ships in the Red Sea to strike and punish them, and will continue to search despite the enemy’s attempts to camouflage them. He affirmed that they will spare no effort, and the missile force has started its work, and carried out a number of operations with missile shelling, and long-range missiles, to the south of occupied Palestine; to target Zionist Israeli targets there, as well as the drone aircraft.
Sayyid al-Houthi made a statement regarding the situation in the Red Sea. He said, “Especially in Bab al-Mandab, and what borders the Yemeni territorial waters, our eyes are open for permanent monitoring. We are constantly searching for any Israeli ship.”
He added some information for everyone’s understanding. “The Israeli enemy depends on its movement in the Red Sea, especially from Bab al-Mandab, on smuggling and camouflage. They did not dare to raise the Israeli flags on their ships. Instead, they resort to smuggling and closing Electronic radio devices.”
Moreover, Sayyid al-Houthi confirmed the intentions of the Yemeni forces. “We will target the ships of the Zionist enemy. They will not succeed in hiding. Even so, they will not succeed. We will search until we verify the ships that belong to them. We will not hesitate to target them.”
He wanted to let everyone know about the fear of the enemy. “The enemy is afraid. They depend on this method. This indicates the extent of the effectiveness and impact of the position of our country and our people. It also shows its impact on the Israeli enemy. They are afraid to this extent.”
He pointed out the enemy’s actions in Arab countries. “At a time when they raise the Israeli flags in their embassies in Arab countries, and in the capitals of Arab countries, they do not dare to raise the Israeli flag on ships passing through the Red Sea, or from Bab al-Mandab. Instead, they raise the flags of other countries. They camouflage their ships and close devices so that they seek not to be detected.”
Finally, he confirmed their determination. “But – Allah willing – we will catch them, with the success of Allah. We will punish them. At any level our hands and capabilities reach, we will not hesitate to target the Israeli enemy. This is our declared, explicit, and clear position. Let the whole world know about it.”
After the speech of Sayyid Abdulmalik al-Houthi, the Armed Forces announced the start of taking all practical measures to implement the issued directives regarding the appropriate treatment of any Israeli ship in the Red Sea. It confirmed that it will not hesitate to target any Israeli ship in the Red Sea or any place that the Yemeni Armed Forces can reach, starting from the moment this statement was announced.
The Armed Forces also confirmed that military operations against the Israeli enemy will not stop until the Israeli aggression stops against our brothers in the steadfast Gaza.
