Yemen’s Armed Forces have successfully targeted an Israeli vessel in the Gulf of Aden as well as the Port of Eilat in the southern part of the occupied territories in fresh pro-Palestinian operations.

The forces’ spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree announced the operations in a video statement on Thursday.

He identified the vessel in question as “MSC Darwin,” saying the target was struck “with a number of appropriate missiles and several drones, successfully achieving the operation's objectives.”

Saree said the Yemeni forces had also fired “several ballistic and cruise missiles at a number of Israeli targets” in Eilat.

The statement came only a day after the spokesman announced that the forces had targeted two American vessels and an Israeli one in solidarity with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, who are enduring a United States-backed Israeli war of genocide.

More than 34,300 Palestinians have been killed and over 77,200 others wounded in the war that the regime began on October 7, 2023 following a retaliatory operation by the Palestinian territory’s resistance movements.

The brutal military onslaught enjoys unreserved military and intelligence support on the part of the US. Washington has also vetoed several United Nations Security Council resolutions calling for a ceasefire in the war.

According to Saree, “The Yemeni Armed Forces affirm their continued support for the Palestinian people by blocking Israeli navigation or navigation to the ports of occupied Palestine in the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea, and the Indian Ocean.”

The forces would also keep “carrying out more military operations against Israeli targets in occupied Palestine,” he added.

The operations, the spokesman went on, would continue as long as the Tel Aviv regime sustained the military campaign and a simultaneous siege that it has been employing against the coastal sliver.
