Houthis say Israeli-, US- and British-owned ships banned from transiting through Red Sea

Ships that are wholly or partially owned by Israeli individuals or entities and Israel-flagged vessels are banned from the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden and Arabian Sea, say statements from an agency controlled by Yemen’s Houthi group seen by Reuters.

The statements, sent to shipping insurers and firms from the Houthis’ Humanitarian Operations Coordination Center, also said ships owned by US or British individuals or entities, or sailing under their flags, are also banned.
