A senior official explained that the waters are safe as long as the ships are not connected to certain countries, particularly Israel. Pentagon: “New Houthi attack against US ship”
Russian and Chinese ships transiting the Red Sea will be guaranteed safe passage. This was stated in an interview by a senior Houthi official with the Russian agency Izvestia, in which Mohammed al-Bukhaiti insisted that the waters around Yemen, which some shipping companies are avoiding due to continued aggression by the rebel group supported by ‘Iran, are safe as long as the ships are not connected to certain countries, particularly Israel.
“As with all other countries, including Russia and China, their shipments in the region are not threatened,” he says. “Moreover, we are ready to ensure the safe passage of their ships in the Red Sea, because free navigation plays a significant role for our country.”
Pentagon: “New Houthi attack against US ship”
Houthi forces launched a new missile attack on a US-owned ship yesterday, after President Joe Biden said American strikes had not deterred militants in the Red Sea. The Pentagon said no damage or injuries were reported after the Houthis fired two missiles at the MV Chem Ranger.
The attack followed the fifth round of US raids in Yemen. The White House said American forces “eliminated a number of Houthi missiles” that were to be fired at ships in the Red Sea.
