Breaking news! Three MSC container ships were attacked again!

According to CCTV News, on May 9 local time, Yemeni Houthi spokesman Yahya Sarea made a televised speech saying that the Houthi armed forces attacked several ships related to Israel.

Yahya Sarea said that the Houthi armed forces' targets included the "MSC DEGO" and "MSC GINA" in the Gulf of Aden. The organization also attacked the "MSC VITTORIA" twice in the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea respectively.



Sarea did not explain why the Houthis claimed the attacks two days later. The group insisted that they would not stop their attacks as long as Israel continued its war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier, the leader of the Yemeni Houthi armed forces issued a televised speech on May 2, saying that since the outbreak of a new round of Israeli-Palestinian conflict in October last year, the Houthis have launched a total of 156 attacks on Israeli-related ships. Due to the Houthi attacks, the prices of food and medicine in Israel have risen. He said that if the United States and Israel still do not make concessions, the Houthis are ready to further escalate the military confrontation.


The organization also stated in a statement that starting from local time on the 3rd, the Houthis will attack relevant ships in the "Mediterranean area covered by their weapons". If Israel launches an attack on the southern city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip, the Houthis will continue to expand the scope of the attack to attack all ships of companies that have traded with Israel in the past few months in the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean, regardless of the nationality of these ships and the target port.
