Yemeni Houthi rebels hijack cargo ship

An Israeli-linked cargo ship in the Red Sea was hijacked by Yemen’s Houthi rebels, who took 25 crew members hostage, according to Israeli officials.

A spokesperson for Yemen’s Houthi group confirmed on Sunday the rebels captured the ship and took the crew members as hostage due to the ship’s ties to Israel.

“The Yemeni armed forces reiterate their warning to all ships belonging to or dealing with the Israeli enemy that they will become a legitimate target for armed forces,” Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saree wrote in a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The Houthis, who are supported by Iran, are currently in a cease-fire amid a civil war with the Yemeni government.
