Yemen’s Houthis, alongside the Iranian-backed Iraqi militia known as the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, have claimed responsibility for a joint military operation targeting vessels in Israel’s Haifa port.

Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saree announced in a televised statement that drones targeted two cement tankers and two cargo ships at Haifa port. This action was reportedly in response to noncompliance with a ban on entering ‘ports of occupied Palestine’.

Israel’s Channel 12 reported an explosion in Haifa early this morning, although the Israeli military has not commented on the Houthi claim. However, they did report shooting down a drone approaching from the east overnight.

In a related incident, the British maritime security agency UKMTO reported a drone attack on a merchant ship in the Red Sea near Yemen, causing damage but no injuries.

The attack occurred about 65 nautical miles west of the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah. All crew members were reported safe, and the vessel is proceeding to its next port of call.

The Houthis, who have conducted over 60 attacks on ships since the start of the war, claimed these actions are in support of Palestinians. They have vowed to intensify operations against ships docking at Israeli ports.”

Meanwhile,US Central Command (CENTCOM) has disputed some of the Houthi claims, stating it destroyed three nautical drones belonging to the group and intercepted three anti-ship missiles in the Gulf of Aden without causing significant damage.”
