Yemen Seizes Cargo Ship “Galaxy Leader” Belonging to Israeli Businessman

Yemeni Armed Forces have seized an ‘Israeli’ cargo ship called the ‘’Galaxy Leader’’ that was reportedly sailing in the Red Sea on November 19, 2023.  The rather impossible task achieved by the Yemeni Forces has been deemed as a step of escalation in their war against the Israeli Regime which was waged solely for Palestine. 

The Galaxy Leader is reportedly linked to a British company which is partially owned by an Israeli businessman Abraham Ungar, who is better known as “Rami”.

Ungar, a wealthy Israeli businessman who has a net worth of $2.1 billion, marking him as one of the wealthiest people in ‘Israel’. 

Ungar is reportedly a controversial and influential businessman, with significant connections to the Israeli regime.

Ungar allegedly has close ties with several politicians and is known to be a close friend of former Mossad intelligence director Yossi Cohen.

The Israeli army has described the incident a “very serious incident on the global scale”  but denied claims of the ship being Israeli.

“The ship departed from Turkey on its way to India, staffed by civilians of various nationalities, not including Israelis.”

The Israeli army quickly shifted the blame to Iran for the attack, despite the Yemeni Armed forces affiliated with the Ansarallah resistance movement clearly announcing that they would target all vessels linked with the Israeli regime in the Red Sea.

The Yemeni statement further called on “all countries of the world to withdraw citizens working on the crews of these ships,” to “avoid shipping on or handling these vessels,” and to “inform ships to stay away from these vessels.” 

The Sanaa government even sought to ban all US-made goods and those produced by international companies that support Israel’s occupation of Palestine.

Yemen is currently the poorest country in the Middle East (West Asia) ravaged by US backed Saudi’s War on Yemen which killed over 370,000 people. They have repeatedly lashed out at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for their silence on the Israeli Regime’s genocide against Gaza, despite their massive wealth and influence in comparison.
