Targeting five ships and battleships in 24 hours… Sana’a raises the bar

Yemen escalated its operations in the Red Sea to an unprecedented level on Wednesday for the first time since the start of operations last November, marking a new phase of confrontation in the Red and Arabian Seas Gulf since the operations began in November.

Exclusive – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:

Yemen’s armed forces, across their various units, carried out five operations in the past 24 hours. It started with targeting the Israeli vessel “MSC Skye 2” in the Arabian Sea, followed by the American battleship USS Carney and another unnamed vessel by the US Central Command, suspected to have been hit. The operations also included intercepting an American ship in the Gulf of Aden and forcing it to change its course, as well as targeting a fifth vessel in the Bab Al-Mandeb Strait.

The damages ranged from fires to moderate injuries, according to British reports.

This is the first time that Yemen’s forces have conducted such large-scale attacks within a 24-hour period. The timing indicates the beginning of a new phase, especially as it comes a day after Yemen’s Minister of Defense, Major General Mohammed Al-Atifi, warned Israel and its allies in Washington and London of more severe operations in the new phase. This follows statements from Ansar Allah’s leader about expanding and diversifying operations in quantity and quality, as well as talk by military leaders in Sana’a about operations extending beyond the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, in addition to focusing on foreign battleships.
