Yemen : Ansarullah vows to continue targeting British ships in Red Sea

Yemen has vowed to continue attacking British ships in the Red Sea in support of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip .

Yemen’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein al-Ezzi made the remarks in a post on X on Sunday, a day after a British container ship sunk in the Red Sea almost two weeks after it was struck in a retaliatory attack by the Yemeni Armed Forces.

“Yemen will continue to sink more British ships, and any repercussions or other damages will be added to Britain’s bill,” Ezzi said.

“It is a rogue state that attacks Yemen and partners with America in sponsoring ongoing crimes against civilians in Gaza,” he added.

The UK-owned Belize-flagged bulk carrier, the M/V Rubymar, came under the Yemeni military’s attack on February 18 with several naval missiles in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait — a strategic waterway linking the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.
