Yemeni naval forces have carried out two separate operations against a British destroyer and two commercial vessels off the nation's coast, demonstrating solidarity with Palestinians amid the ongoing “Israeli” onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Yemeni military announced in a statement on Sunday that the forces targeted the HMS Diamond in the Red Sea with a number of ballistic missiles, emphasizing that the strike was “accurate.”

The statement, however, did not say whether the retaliatory operation had caused any damage.

The Yemeni army further noted that the country’s naval forces had also targeted two commercial vessels which it identified as the Norderney and Tavvishi.

The statement said the Tavvishi – which was in the Arabian Sea – and the Norderney had both been hit, and that a fire broke out on the Norderney.

Yemenis have declared their open support for Palestine’s struggle against the “Israeli” occupation since the entity launched a devastating war on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian resistance movements carried out the surprise retaliatory Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against the occupying entity.

Yemeni Armed Forces have said that they won’t stop their operations until unrelenting “Israeli” ground and aerial offensives in Gaza, which have martyred at least 37,084 people and wounded another 84,494 individuals, come to an end.

Leader of the Ansarullah resistance movement Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi has said it is “a great honor and blessing to be confronting America directly.”

The operations have forced some of the world’s biggest shipping and oil companies to suspend transit through one of the world’s most important maritime trade routes. Tankers are instead adding thousands of miles to international shipping routes by sailing around the continent of Africa rather than going through the Suez Canal.
