Yemeni, Iraqi Resistance Jointly Target Five Israeli-Bound Ships

The Yemeni Armed Forces and the Iraqi Resistance have carried out two joint military operations against Israeli-bound ships, in support of Gaza.

In more cooperation between two factions of the Axis of Resistance, the Yemeni Armed Forces (YAF) revealed on Sunday that two joint military operations were carried out with the Islamic Resistance in Iraq.

In a statement, the YAF revealed that the first military operation targeted four ships in the Port of Haifa, including two cement-carrying ships and two general cargo ships dispatched by companies that violated the Yemeni ban on ships heading to occupied Palestinian ports. 

The second military operation targeted the Shorthorn Express ship in the Mediterranean Sea, en route to the occupied Port of Haifa. 

Attack drones were used to carry out both operations, with the statement confirming that direct hits were achieved. 

The Yemeni Armed Forces affirmed that they would continue cooperating and carrying out joint operations with the Iraqi Resistance, in support of and in victory for the Palestinian people until the aggression ceases and the blockade is lifted off the Gaza Strip.

YAF strike Israeli-affiliated ship, force USS Eisenhower’s retreat

A few hours earlier, the YAF launched attacks on a merchant vessel that violated the embargo on the Israeli occupation and the flagship of the United States Carrier Strike Group 2, the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, in the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea respectively. 

The spokesperson of the YAF, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, detailed the operations of the armed forces in a statement released on Saturday afternoon. 

The MV Tutor suffered a similar fate on June 12, after it was targeted by several Yemeni Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) which completely sunk the vessel. 

Saree said that the YAF’s Navy fired several anti-ship ballistic missiles at the Transworld Navigator bulk carrier, achieving direct hits to the vessel. 

Earlier today, it was reported that US officials have greenlit the aircraft carrier to return home. The Eisenhower will be returning to Norfolk in the state of Virginia, the US Naval Institute’s news service mentioned, citing an anonymous official.

Moreover, the YAF’s Rocket Forces launched an attack on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier in the northern Red Sea, firing a number of ballistic missiles and cruise missiles at the vessel.
