US, Israeli Vessels Targeted in Yemeni Operations
The Yemeni Armed Forces’ spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, announced the operations in a statement on Wednesday.

The first operation saw the forces targeting “the American ship (Maersk Yorktown) in the Gulf of Aden, with a number of suitable naval missiles,” he said, noting that “the hit was accurate.”

Subsequently, the forces carried out drone strikes against “an American destroyer” in the same maritime area and “an Israeli ship (MSC Veracruz) in the Indian Ocean,” Saree added, according to Press TV.

“Both operations have achieved their objectives successfully.”

Yemen has been staging numerous such strikes since October 7, when the Israeli regime unleashed the war in response to a retaliatory operation by Gaza’s resistance groups.

The war has so far claimed the lives of 34,183 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and wounded a total of 77,143 others.

The United States has been providing the regime with maximal military and intelligence support since the onset of the warfare. Washington has also vetoed several UN Security Council resolutions calling for a ceasefire in the brutal military onslaught.

According to Saree, “The Yemeni Armed Forces confirm that they will continue to prevent Israeli navigation or any navigation heading to the ports of occupied Palestine in the Red and Arabian Seas, as well as in the Indian Ocean.”

The operations, he added, would last until the regime ceased the aggression and a simultaneous siege that it has been employing against the coastal sliver.
