Yemen’s Houthi rebels have unveiled a video capturing the hijacking of a cargo ship in the southern Red Sea, a day after the incident took place.
The footage, released by the rebels’ TV channel Al Masirah, depicts armed individuals descending from a helicopter to seize the vessel, identified as the Galaxy Leader.
The Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, claim the ship is linked to Israel. However, Israel has refuted this claim, asserting that the vessel is not Israeli. According to a spokesperson from the Japanese government, the ship is operated by Nippon Yusen.
