Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesman for Yemen's Armed Forces

Yemen’s Armed Forces announce sinking one ship and putting another one at the risk of sinking for violating the country’s ban on using the waters within the forces’ range to travel to the ports of the occupied Palestinian territories.

The forces’ spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, announced the operations on Saturday.

“The ship ‘Verbena’ sinks in the Gulf of Aden after being targeted by a number of missiles,” he said.

“The ship ‘TUTOR,’ which was targeted by a naval drone and a number of ballistic missiles and drones, is at risk of sinking in the coming hours,” the official added.

The Armed Forces have been applying the ban since October 7, when the Israeli regime launched a genocidal war against the Gaza Strip.

At least 37,296 Palestinians have been killed, most of them women and children, and another 85,197 individuals sustained injuries as a result of the war so far.

“The Yemeni Armed Forces renew their warning to all companies against the consequences of dealing with the Israeli enemy and the arrival of their ships to the ports of occupied Palestine,” Saree stated.

“They (the vessels) will be targeted in the area of ​​operations of the Armed Forces,” he asserted.

The official concluded his statement by pledging that the forces would keep up their operations as long as the Israeli regime sustains the war and retains a crippling siege that the regime has been simultaneously enforcing against Gaza.
