Yemen (IP) - The Spokesman of Yemen's Army said that the country would not let commercial ships bounding for the Israeli-occupied Palestine pass through Yemeni waters.

Iran Press/ West Asia: Yahya al-Sari announced on Saturday that the Yemeni army would not allow any ship crossing the Red Sea to reach occupied Palestine unless it is carrying food and drugs for the people of Gaza.

Israel is struggling to compensate for the irreparable intelligence and military blow it suffered from the October 7 Operation of Al-Aqsa Flood carried out by Hamas. 

Yahya al-Sari noted: "Any ship bounding for the Zionist regime will be a legitimate target for us. We warn all ships and companies not to have anything to do with Israeli ports."

The decision to prevent foreign ships from docking at the regime's ports was made after Yemen did not allow Israeli ships to pass through the Red Sea.

Yemen's forces seized the Galaxy Leader, an “Israeli” cargo ship that was sailing in the Red Sea with 22 crew members on board, on November 19.

Also, on December 3, the Pentagon reported that an American warship and multiple commercial vessels came under attack in the Red Sea by drones.

Since the beginning of the Israeli war on Gaza, nearly 18,000 Palestinian people have been martyred, and more than 46,000 others have been injured. Furthermore, the danger of famine is threatening the people of Gaza due to the Israeli blockade on the strip.
