The Iranian-backed Houthi militia has been launching long-range missiles at Israel since the start of the war in Yemen. Their latest attack involved hijacking a ship owned by the “Ray” company, which was carrying vehicles from Turkey to India through the Red Sea. On February 7th, the Houthis attacked and hijacked the ship with 25 crew members on board. None of them were Israeli, but they hailed from different countries including Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Philippines, and Mexico.
The Prime Minister’s Office strongly condemned this act of terrorism and called it an attack against global shipping lanes. The ship was owned by a British company and operated by a Japanese company. The incident is being considered as an act of Iranian terrorism and poses serious implications on global security.
IDF spokesman Brigadier General Daniel Gary also condemned the attack and called it a “very serious incident at the global level.” This is not the first time such a kidnapping has occurred on this critical maritime trade route in the Red Sea. In fact, there have been previous incidents involving ships being attacked or hijacked in this area, highlighting how vulnerable this region is to terrorist activity.
