Yemen's Houthis committed an act of piracy by hijacking a ship in the Red Sea

The operational situation in the Middle East continues to deteriorate. It has been reported that Yemen's Houthis have hijacked a merchant ship in the Red Sea in an outrageous act of piracy.

According to Saudi Arabian media, pro-Iranian Houthis infiltrated the Israeli ro-ro Galaxy Leader, which was flying the flag of the Bahamas. There were 22 crew members on board the merchant ship, which was moving off the coast of Saudi Arabia.

According to monitoring resources, the seized ro-ro belongs to the Ray Shipping company of Israeli businessman Rami Unger. However, this ship has long been leased to a Japanese company and there are no Israelis on board, since all crew members are Japanese citizens.

Note that the Houthis previously announced their readiness to seize and sink any ships in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandeb Strait associated with Israel because of what is happening in the Gaza Strip. They say that in war all means are good, but this is only in words, since if you are not able to withstand the “answer”, then it is better not to rant on such topics.

Reviewing the current problems, it is worth noting that at least 10% of world trade is carried out through the mentioned shipping arteries, and this is hundreds of billions of dollars. For that kind of money, Yemen can not only be bombed, but lowered into the state of the Stone Age. Therefore, it is time for the pro-Iranian Houthi leadership to stop abusing the process of carefully and copiously chewing the drug khat - the leaves of a local evergreen stimulant shrub, the leaves of which contain cathinone - a chemical substance similar in effect to amphetamines, because ordinary residents of the country will pay for their actions.

    Well, just think, the Houthis have identified themselves, apologize and let the Japs go, but well done!
    It’s better for the Jewish bourgeoisie to be informed about what they have already sold to others, otherwise when will the Houthis figure it out!

    That is, when Iranian tankers are intercepted by the United States and co., this is normal civilized life.
    And when their opponents do exactly the same thing, this is “outrageous piracy.”

      The publication wrote somewhere that the US seizure of tankers is “normal civilized life”?

    The author does not ask about the seizure of Iranian tankers or our tankers. He needs Jewish and Japanese

      So how is it possible? These are the owner's tankers, you can't touch them. And some kind of Iranian or Russian is the legal prey of a privateer.

    Spiegel Online recalled Netanyahu's speech at a meeting of the Likud faction in 2019, during which he frankly said that opponents of an independent Palestine should support funding for Hamas

    Sarah Wagenknecht, in a new episode of her YouTube blog, drew attention to the origins of today's tragedy in the Middle East. Or rather, the dubious political games of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, documented by the members of the Israeli government themselves: he personally lobbied for funding for Islamists from Hamas in order to prevent the creation of a Palestinian state. As a result, we have what we have.

    Much like the US and Israeli's illegally capture and impound the ships of other countries in international and coastal waters, the other countries of the world have the same right.

    How are the Japanese different from the Israelis or the outskirts? The same Nazis, the same Anglo-Saxon mongrels.

    committing an outrageous act of piracy.

    This is serious? The West is constantly engaged in piracy and nothing, but here I really can’t continue without swearing.

    The author surprises literate people with his ignorance of the fact that Yemen has long been in the Stone Age, after the internal war and the war with Saudi Arabia. It is difficult to intimidate them with any kind of revenge from Western or other countries.

    The seizure of this galosh has already caused a rise in prices, and the wave has gone far. It’s interesting what the states will answer to this, there are a lot of them there. I wonder what they were carrying there...
