Houthis Seize Israeli Ship in the Red Sea

Jerusalem: Houthis from Yemen have seized an Israeli ship in the southern Red Sea.

According to international news agencies, Israel had stated that Houthi rebels have captured a British-owned and Japanese cargo ship in the southern Red Sea, describing the incident as an “Iranian act of terrorism” with potential threats to international maritime security.

The Houthis claimed that they had seized a maritime vessel in the region but identified it as Israeli. “We are treating the ship’s crew in accordance with Islamic principles and values,” they said.

Houthis, aligned with the Palestinian Hamas resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip, have been launching missiles and drone attacks against Israel in solidarity with the beleaguered Palestinians.

A spokesperson for the Japanese government confirmed the capture of the maritime ship Galaxy Leader, operated by Nippon Yusen. Japan is appealing to the Houthis to work with Saudi, Omani, and Iranian authorities for the immediate release of the ship.
