Yemeni forces claim first attacks on ships in Indian Ocean

The yemeni forces claimed on Friday that it had attacked Israeli and American ships in the Indian Ocean for the first time, only hours after its leader promised to extend action against Israel-linked ships in the area.

Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Sarea said that yemeni forces launched drones and anti-ship missiles at three Israeli and American ships in the Indian Ocean following its attacks in the Red Sea, Bab Al-Mandab Strait, and the Gulf of Aden.

He also claimed that forces used missiles to strike an “Israeli” ship named Pacific 01 which was traveling through the Red Sea, as well as firing drones at a US Navy ship.

The Houthis warned that its forces will now attack any Israel-linked ships or those going to Israel in the Indian Ocean through the Cape of Good Hope.
