Yemen’s Houthis conduct joint military operation targeting ships in Israel

Yemen’s Houthis, in coordination with the Islamic Resistance in Iraq militant group, claimed to have conducted a joint military operation targeting four ships at Israel’s northern Haifa port. This attack, which took place on Saturday, aimed at two cement tankers and two cargo ships, was executed using drones, Reuters reported.
In a televised statement early on Sunday, Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Saree detailed the operation.Saree specifically noted the ships belonged to companies that “violated the ban on entering the ports of occupied Palestine.”
The Israeli military has not commented on this event. Previously, they had denied a similar claim by the Houthis earlier this month.
Saree added that the group had also attacked the Shorthorn Express in the Mediterranean using drones. This was part of the Houthis’ ongoing campaign to disrupt shipping in key waterways, as an act of solidarity with Palestinians involved in the Gaza conflict.
There has been no independent confirmation of these attacks.
The Iran-aligned Houthis have been conducting drone and missile strikes in shipping lanes since November. These attacks have resulted in the sinking of two vessels, the seizure of another, and the deaths of at least three seafarers.
