Yemen says capable of ‘sinking’ enemy ships across Red, Arabian, Mediterranean Seas

Yemen, which has been targeting Israel-linked ships in support of war-hit Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, says it is capable of “sinking” enemy ships at any point across the Red, Arabian, and Mediterranean Seas.  

“By the power of God, we are able to sink ships and battleships [from any point on the Yemeni mainland to any point in the Red, Arabian, and Mediterranean Seas],” Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein al-Ezzi wrote in a post on X on Saturday.

“But we leave that for another time,” he, however, added, noting, “We are still keen on peace with the least amount of escalation possible.”

Yemen’s Armed Forces and the country’s Ansarullah popular resistance movement have been staging many strikes against Israeli vessels or those bound for the occupied Palestinian territories’ ports.

The operations have been described as a response to an October 7, 2023-present war and siege that the Israeli regime has been waging against Gaza following an operation carried out by the Palestinian territory’s resistance movements.

Nearly 26,300 Palestinians, some 70 percent of whom are women, children, and adolescents, have been killed in the brutal onslaught so far.
