Yemeni rebels hijacked plane coming to India, wires connected to Israel; Said- warned in advance
Jerusalem : Israel-Hamas war Israel-Hamas war is continuously increasing. The Israeli army is now entering Gaza and eliminating Hamas terrorists. Meanwhile, Yemen’s Houthi rebels, claiming to be Israeli, have hijacked an India-bound ship in the southern Red Sea.
Israel denied these claims
On the other hand, Israel on Sunday said that the plane (hijacked by Houthi rebels) is not ours and it is a British-owned and Japanese-operated cargo ship. Israel described the incident as a threat to international maritime security and a terrorist act by Iran.
Houthi rebels had already warned of seizing the plane
On the other hand, Houthi issued a statement saying that it has seized an Israeli ship in the sea. “We are treating the crew in accordance with Islamic principles and values,” a spokesman for the group said.
Tehran’s ally the Houthis recently launched long-range missile and drone attacks on Israel in a show of solidarity with Palestinian Hamas militants fighting in the Gaza Strip.
America’s perspective on the situation
Earlier on Sunday, the Houthis said all aircraft owned or operated by Israeli companies or flying the Israeli flag could be targeted.
Last week, the Houthi leadership said their forces would launch further attacks on Israel and that they could target Israeli ships in the Red Sea. A defense official said the US was monitoring the situation.
