Yemen to target any ships owned, operated by Israeli companies: Saree
In solidarity with Palestinian people in the wake of the brutal Israeli aggression on Gaza, Yemen reiterates the threat against Israeli vessels in the Red Sea.
The Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesperson, Yahya Saree, announced on Sunday the group's intention to target any ships owned or operated by Israeli companies or bearing the Israeli flag. This statement, made on the group's Telegram channel, also included a call for all nations to withdraw their citizens employed in the crews of any such ships.
"We urge all countries to avoid shipping on vessels owned by Israeli companies or operated by them," he further stressed.
Yemen: Armed forces set to target all Israeli ships
In the same context, a Yemeni military source revealed to Al Mayadeen the Yemeni Armed Forces' readiness to target any Israeli vessel, whether in the Red Sea or any other place unexpected by the enemy.
"Our armed forces are set to target all Israeli ships, whether they are heading to occupied Palestine or not," the source said.
The Yemeni Armed Forces launched on Tuesday a salvo of ballistic missiles at various targets of the Israeli enemy in the occupied Palestinian territories.
At the time, Saree confirmed that the Yemeni Armed Forces targeted sensitive sites in "Eilat", built on the ruins of the Palestinian Um al-Rashrash, just 24 hours after another military operation.
He added that the Yemeni Armed Forces would begin implementing directives in terms of taking the appropriate measures against any Israeli vessel in the Red Sea. Furthermore, he underlined that the Yemeni Armed Forces would not hesitate to target any Israeli ship in the Red Sea "or any place within our reach."
Yemen has also launched long-range cruise missiles and attack drones on several occasions, as well as ballistic missiles at "Eilat" located in the southernmost region of occupied Palestine.
