A cargo ship traveling from Turkey to India has been hijacked by Yemen’s Houthi rebels in the Red Sea. The ship had approximately 50 crew members from different countries on board, but it is unknown if any Indians were among them. The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed the hijacking on X, stating that it is a serious incident with global implications. They clarified that the ship, named “Galaxy Leader,” departed from Turkey and was staffed by civilians of various nationalities, excluding Israelis. The Israeli Prime Minister’s office condemned the attack, attributing it to Iranian guidance and the Yemenite Houthi militia. According to an official from the Houthis, they took control of the Israeli cargo ship and moved it to the port city of Salif. The vessel is registered under a British company, partially owned by Israeli tycoon Abraham Ungar. The Houthis, with support from Iran, have previously announced their intention to target vessels linked to Israel in the Red Sea. They stated that they will continue launching missile and drone strikes until Israeli aggression ceases. The Houthis have held control over Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, since 2014 and have significant influence over the country.
