Yemen Extends Pro-Palestine Maritime War to the Indian Ocean as Israeli Bound Ships Re-route via Cape of Good Hope

The Yemeni Armed Forces have targeted three cargo ships in the Red Sea, Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean with anti-ship cruise missiles in the wake of Yemen’s pro-Palestine maritime war. 

The spokesperson of the YAF, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, confirmed that the operations were carried out 72 hours before the release of a statement. The first ship that was targeted by the Yemeni Armed Forces Navy was the UK-owned cargo ship, Hope Island cargo ship. The other two were reportedly heading towards “Israeli” ports in Palestine and were successfully targeted. 

The MSC GRACE F vessel was attacked in the Indian Ocean and the second ship, the MSC GINA was targeted in the Arabian sea, with the Yemeni Armed forces declaring victory of their intended objectives.  

According to maritime tracking websites, the last updated position of the MSC GRACE F was in East Africa 154 days ago while MSC GINA was last tracked near Sri Lanka 11 days ago.

Notably, “Israeli” linked ships have tried to hide their activity in the region, by turning off communication and identifying equipment.

Yahya Saree further revealed that the Yemeni Armed Forces carried out two operations that attacked several US Navy fighters in the Red Sea with suicide drones. 

The Yemeni Armed Forces has also expanded their naval operations to the Indian Ocean following the commands of Ansar Allah leader, Sayyed Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, and from the demands of the Yemeni people, in a quest to further repel the movement of Israeli-affiliates ships, which have rerouted to the Cape of Good Hope route. 

Saree has vowed that the Yemeni Armed Forces will continue its operations in the waterways until the brutal war of the Israeli regime comes to a halt and the Israeli siege on the Palestinians is lifted.
