Houthis claim launch of 14 operations in two weeks as far out as Indian Ocean

The leader of Yemen’s Houthis, Abdul Malik al-Houthi, claims the group has launched 14 operations in two weeks in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea and even reaching the Indian Ocean.

“There is no danger to maritime traffic related to (ships linked to) European countries that are not heading to Israel,” he adds in a televised speech.

Iran-aligned Houthi rebels in Yemen have launched repeated drone and missile strikes against Israel and in the Red Sea, Bab el-Mandab Strait and the Gulf of Aden since November in support of Palestinians, as the Israel-Hamas war continues.

Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
