Houthis Reportedly Prevent Israeli Vessel from Entering Red Sea

Iran-backed Houthi rebels have reportedly prevented a commercial Israeli vessel from entering the Red Sea, according to the Saudi media outlet Al Arabiya.

The Houthis have repeatedly warned that any commercial vessels with links to Israel are viewed as military targets, which comes amid a string of hijackings and attacks in recent weeks.

So far, there has not been a confirmation of the incident or an alert through the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO).
