Yemen's Houthi official advises vessels not to travel towards Palestinian territories

Mohamed Ali al-Houthi, the head of Yemen's Houthi supreme revolutionary committee, posted a message on the social media platform X telling cargo ships not to head towards the occupied Palestinian territories.

Houthi added that all ships passing Yemen should keep their radios turned on and quickly respond to Houthi attempts at communication.

He also advised ships not to falsify "their identity" or raise flags different from the country belonging to the cargo ship owner.
