The Houthis after the attacks in the Red Sea: We were targeting Israeli ships
The Yemeni Houthis today attacked Israeli, British and American ships in the Red Sea with drones due to renewed Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.
The spokesman for the Yemeni Houthis, General Yahya Sari, said that two Israeli ships were attacked, which, according to him, ignored the warnings of the Houthi navy, reports "Reuters".
Sari says that the Houthis will continue to target Israeli ships in the Red Sea and that Yemen is fighting a fateful battle with the Israeli occupier – the United States, reported the Lebanese television "Al Maidin".
Earlier, the Ambri maritime security company said it had received reports that British a cargo ship was hit by a missile while passing through the Red Sea.
"A British Bahamian-flagged cargo ship was reportedly hit by a missile while transiting the Red Sea, approximately 34,5 kilometers northwest of Moka, Yemen," Ambri said.
Then Pentagon said the US destroyer USS Kearney and several commercial ships in the Red Sea had been attacked, without specifying where the attacks came from.
The Houthis have declared themselves part of the "axis of resistance" of Iran's allies and have also launched a series of drones and missiles at Israel.
The United States of America (US) has said it is considering the possibility of declaring Yemen's Houthi rebels a terrorist organization.
