Nun ist es ihnen also geglückt, den vom Iran unterstützen Houthis im Jemen. Seit Beginn des Gazakrieges greifen sie Schiffe im Roten Meer an und habne auch mehrfach Raketen auf Israel abgeschossen:

The United Kingdom's Maritime Trade Operations Agency (UKMTO) reported Monday that the Houthis sunk a ship traveling in the Red Sea, south of the port city of Mukha in Yemen. It is the first time since the start of Israel's war on Hamas in Gaza that a crew had to abandon their ship because of the Houthis.

Initial reports stated that there were no casualties in the incident, and military officials who were in the area provided the crew with assistance. A report by the Al-Jazeera network, which is based on a source in the field of shipping in Yemen, stated that Ansar Allah forces, or the Houthis in Yemen, attacked a British ship near Bab al-Mandab. The source added that the ship was significantly damaged, which caused it to stop in the water, and that the crew called for help.

Sources gave the Lebanese al-Mayadeen channel, which is affiliated with Hezbollah, more details about the events. According to them, the ship was carrying ammonia and, after it was attacked, attempts were made to save it, but it caught fire and began to sink. The sources said that the ship "was attacked with a precise and new weapon that has not been revealed until now."
