The fighters then proceed throughout the ship, armed with AKs and body armor, before raising the flags of Palestine and Yemen. The video then shows multiple civilian-style speedboats escorting the captured ship back to Yemen.

This comes just days after the Houthis stated they would attack or capture vessels owned or operated by Israelis in solidarity with Palestine. Read the full story here.
