India-Bound Ship Hijacked By Yemen's Houthi Rebels In Red Sea: Report

NEW DELHI:  A cargo ship from Turkey bound for India has allegedly been  hijacked by Yemen's Houthi rebels in the Red Sea. According to reports,the ship was carrying around 50 crew members belonging to various nations. It is not known whether any Indians are on board the "Galaxy Leader".

Confirming the hijack, the Israeli Defence Forces posted on X, formerly Twitter: "The hijacking of a cargo ship by the Houthis near Yemen in the southern Red Sea is a very grave incident of global consequence. The ship departed Turkey on its way to India, staffed by civilians of various nationalities, not including Israelis. It is not an Israeli ship."

"Israel strongly condemns the Iranian attack against an international vessel. The ship, which is owned by a British company and is operated by a Japanese firm, was hijacked with Iran guidance by the Yemenite Houthi militia," read a post on X from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office.

 

 

 "The Bahaman-flagged vessel is registered under a British company, which is partially owned by Israeli tycoon Abraham Ungar, who goes by Rami. The vessel was leased out to a Japanese company at the time of the hijacking," reported The Times of Israel.

The Houthis, backed by Iran, have vowed to target Israel-linked vessels in the Red Sea. "The Yemeni Armed Forces... confirm they will continue to carry out qualitative strikes with missiles and drones until the Israeli aggression stops," read a Houthi military statement aired on the rebels' Al-Masirah TV earlier this month.

Earlier, they carried out strikes in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which conducted a military campaign against the rebels
