On Nov 14th, Yemen announced they would begin targeting Israeli-flagged ships in retaliation for the massacre of Palesitnains in Gaza.
Earlier today, Yemen captured a ship in the Red Sea, an act which may turn out to be the most significant development in the war so far.

Yemeni Military Spokesman Warns: All Types of Israeli Ships Will Be Under Fire
In the context of the major support provided by the Yemeni people and armed forces to the Palestinian people and resistance against the barbaric Israeli war on Gaza, military spokesman General Yahya Sarea warned that all types of the Israeli ships will be struck by Yemeni missiles.
In light of the religious, national, and ethical responsibilities, and considering the heinous Israeli-American aggression against the Gaza Strip, characterized by daily massacres and genocidal acts, and in response to the demands of the Yemeni people and the aspirations of free nations to aid our oppressed brethren in Gaza, General Sarea said in a statement.
The statement added that the Yemeni Armed Forces declare their intention to target all types of ships as follows:
1. Ships carrying the flag of the Zionist entity.
2. Ships operated by Israeli companies.
3. Ships owned by Israeli companies.
According to the statement, the Yemeni Armed Forces also call upon all countries of the world to:
A. Withdraw their citizens working within the crews of these ships.
B. Avoid shipping goods aboard these ships or engaging in transactions with them.
C. Notify your vessels to stay away from these ships.
Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement Abdul Malik Badreddine Al-Houthi on Tuesday announced that Yemeni forces would intensify attacks on Israeli targets in occupied Palestine, stating the intention to target Israeli ships in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandeb Strait.
The Yemeni Armed Forces announced the launch of multiple ballistic missiles targeting strategic locations of the Zionist entity in the southern part of the occupied territories. The strikes included military targets in the Um Al-Rashrash area, ‘Eilat’.
Yemeni Houthi rebels seize Israeli-linked ship
West Jerusalem claims that the raid on the Galaxy Leader cargo ship in the Red Sea was orchestrated by Iran
The Houthi government in Yemen says it has seized an Israeli-affiliated cargo ship in the Red Sea, as tensions between the two boil over due to the conflict in Gaza. Israel has condemned the move but insists that the ship had no connection to the country.
Japanese-based operator NYK Line said on Monday that the Bahamian-flagged pure car and truck carrier, the Galaxy Leader, was captured near Hodeida, Yemen while sailing for India, adding that there were 25 crew members aboard.
While operated by a Japanese company, the ship is owned by British-based Ray Car Carriers, associated with Abraham Ungar, one of the richest men in Israel, according to Forbes.
Brigadier General Yahya Sarie, the spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, confirmed that the navy had directed the vessel to the country’s coast, claiming that the operation was carried out based “on religious, humanitarian and moral responsibility towards the oppressed Palestinian people and the unjust siege they are subjected to.”
He noted that Yemen would “deal with the ship’s crew in accordance with the teachings and values of our Islamic religion.” The Yemeni military would also “continue to carry out military operations against the Israeli enemy until the aggression” against Gaza stops, he added.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) described the incident as “hijacking” and a “grave incident of global consequence,” while stressing that the vessel was “staffed by civilians of various nationalities, not including Israelis. It is not an Israeli ship.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office claimed that the hijacking was orchestrated by Tehran, which has close ties with the Houthi rebels, condemning what it called “another act of Iranian terrorism.”
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani denied the allegation, claiming that various “resistance groups in the region act independently and spontaneously based on their interests.” He added that West Jerusalem’s claims about the vessel were meant to divert attention from its “irreparable defeat” in the conflict with Hamas.
Tensions between the Houthis and Israel have soared in the aftermath of the October 7 Hamas attack on the Jewish state. Last month, the Yemeni military said it had launched drones and missiles at Israel in support of the Palestinian cause. Before that, the Pentagon said that a US destroyer deployed in the Red Sea had shot down several missiles fired from Yemen and potentially heading toward targets in Israel.
