The economy of the Zionist entity will be greatly affected by the Yemeni decision to impose a naval blockade. "The Red Sea, which is a lifeline for the Israeli economy (the Red Sea) is now closed to Israeli maritime traffic. Israeli ships cannot camouflage or hide themselves.
The effects of the naval blockade on the Zionist entity in the Red Sea, according to Abdullah bin Amer, Deputy Director of Moral Guidance in the Yemeni Armed Forces, include the fact that "Israel relies on navigation in the Red Sea not only for imports but also for exports. This means that the losses will extend to Israeli factories that produce goods exported to East Asia, East Africa, Australia, and for these ships to circumnavigate through the Mediterranean Sea, then the Atlantic Ocean around the African continent to reach their destination.
We witnessed the beginning of its repercussions today, as the enemy's media revealed that Israeli ships and those involved in trade with Israel will be forced to cross to South Africa and enter the Mediterranean basin over a very long distance due to threats from the Yemeni army. This will cost them a significant amount of money and delay the arrival of goods by at least two weeks.
In addition to the increased costs of maritime transportation insurance for Zionist shipping, the Zionist entity will find it difficult to persuade shipping and maritime companies to continue their operations and activities associated with Israeli companies or Zionist ports.
The port of Eilat, "Umm Al-Rashrash," will be affected as 80% of its ships arrive or depart from or through the Red Sea, and we will witness a contraction in the activities of the Israeli port.
In addition to the trade blockade, the Yemeni ban also includes the Zionist military navy. "Under normal circumstances, the enemy's warships used the Red Sea and acted as if they were the leaders in this sea. However, since the Yemeni operations began, they have not ventured beyond the Gulf of Aqaba and have not dared to reach even the middle of the Red Sea from the northern side."
The Yemeni side has reiterated multiple times that the Zionist enemy is the sole target of its operations in the Red Sea, and that its operations are linked to the ongoing Zionist aggression against Gaza, which has claimed the lives of tens of thousands of women and children in the past month and a half.
Sana'a has previously issued several warnings to the entity regarding this matter, affirming that "the Zionist entity is the one threatening the security and stability of the region and international passages.
Hence, the historic operation took place on November 19, 2023, with the capture of the Zionist ship, garnering widespread Arab popular satisfaction. It is an indication that this will not be the last operation, as the Yemeni Armed Forces affirmed in their statement their determination to "continue carrying out military operations against the Israeli enemy until the aggression on the Gaza Strip and the crimes against our Palestinian brothers come to a halt."
However, the enemy entity is attempting to exploit the world's attention towards the Red Sea and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait as a major international passage for global maritime traffic. The enemy has tried to portray Yemeni naval operations as a threat to international navigation. In response to the Zionist exaggerations, Yemen provided reassurances, confirming that its naval operations solely target enemy ships and military vessels, and their cessation is linked to the cessation of aggression against Gaza.
Observers believe that the Yemeni reassurances are not a sign of weakness. The capture of the "Galaxy Leader" ship and previous actions have demonstrated the capabilities and strength of the Yemeni army in fulfilling its responsibilities and confronting major powers. Therefore, "any military action against Yemen will lead to an escalation in the Red Sea and may even result in its complete closure for navigation because any military operations against Yemen will be conducted from the sea, and Yemen will undoubtedly respond in the same sea. This is where the world will face this dangerous development."
Spokesperson for Ansarullah, Mohammed Abdulsalam, affirmed that "the seizure of the Israeli ship is a practical step that demonstrates the seriousness of the Yemeni Armed Forces in engaging in the maritime battle, regardless of its costs and consequences. This is just the beginning, and any desire to prevent the conflict from expanding lies in putting an end to the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip."
Consequently, faced with the new reality imposed by the Yemeni Armed Forces, the easiest path for the international community, if it is keen on the security and stability of the region and on avoiding the expansion of the conflict, is to stop the Israeli aggression against Gaza. Otherwise, the cost will be high for them.
