Houthis Attacked Saudi Oil Tanker In Red Sea

Donate

The Houthis have struck a Saudi oil tanker in the Red Sea, west of the Yemeni port of Hodeidah, the Saudi-led coalition said on April 3. According to the statement, the oil tanker sustained “minor damage” and continued moving via its route.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, a spokesman for the coalition forces, said that the oil tanker had been attacked in international waters at 1:30pm local time.

Meanwhile, the Houthis said that their naval forces had targeted “a Saudi-led coalition warship” in response to an air strike in Yemen’s Hodeidah province on April 2.

A Saudi-led coalition bombing on Hodeidah killed at least 12 civilians, including seven children. The victims were reportedly all from the same family.

    According to Al-Masdar News, in fact Houthis targeted a Saudi warship, not tanker.

      Good info, but I wouldn’t assume either report is 100% correct.

    • nshah

      There you go.. the wahbabi are full of shit ego..!
      Tx..

  • Zainab Ali

    zio wahabbis might have a minor physical injury to their tanker but their satanic ego must have been too big for their pea brain to admit they are total losers to the houthis

    • You can call me Al

      Knowing the lying zio wahabbis, the minor damage, means the bugger sunk and the pollution is spreading along the Saudi naval bases.

      • nshah

        I thought so.. hehehe

      Yeah, cos for every one Saudi MERC killed, a thousand innocent Yemen citizens are murdered. What a ‘victory’ for Humanity.

  • Time for the Houthis to be supplied with anti-ship missiles. Turn the Red Sea into a dead sea for Wahhabistani ships!

    • You can call me Al

      Sounds like a plan or me, if you add the free anti-air missile launcher and 2 crates of missiles that goes with each purchase.

    • Starlight

      Right- cos you ‘magically’ FORGOT the FACT that Putin voted at the UNSC a few weeks back to ban all weapon supplies to the houthis, and that Putin has joined with the west in condemning Iran for breaking this ‘ban’ and helping the houthis.

      Watch how the zionist trolls here PRETEND to be unaware of the facts of Putin’s actions.

      If the houthis score ONE ‘spectacular’ against shipping, Britain will be joined by US forces in a massive air blitz of Yemen, with no objection from Putin.

      • AJ

        Where has Putin condemned Iran? do you have a source for this. Russia vetoed a western bid for the United Nations Security Council to call out Tehran for failing to prevent its weapons from falling into the hands of the Houthis

      • Putin said this and Putin said that. Didn’t you just tell me that any politicians job is to lie? Putin can say one thing while giving Iran a wink and a nod!

        US and UK would like an excuse to directly participate in The Saudi genocide campaign in Yemen? That’s obvious, but standing aside to let the genocide proceed at a slower pace is not the answer either. If the Yemen adventure becomes too costly, the Axis of Evil will withdraw, just like Vietnam.

        Moron per day howmany times you dream.

          They didn’t let him out of the funny farm . . he escaped by pretending to be sane and wearing a white coat . .

    • Rob

      Saudi kingdom forces Yamanese to accept my man as a president otherwise I will kill you all. LOL.

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      sounds good to me :))))

  • Smaug

    No surprise, both sides are trying to deny the other food so why not attack oil tankers.

  • Starlight

    Remember, a few weeks ago Putin voted at the UNSC to BAN weapon sales to the houthis- even tho they defend Yemen against daily attacks by the British and Saudis.

    Remember, a few days ago Putin voted at the UNSC to CONDEMN houthi missile attacks against military targets in Saudi Arabia.

    Remember, Putin has met with leading wahhabi horrors from KSA on many occasions, offered them access to all the best Russian waepons, and praised their terror war in Yemen.

    Remember it is the Iranians who support the houthis- Putin is 100% on the side of Saudi Arabia- hence the loving photos of the current leader of KSA on Southfront recently.

    • AJ

      Yet if it wasnt for Putin Assad would have been toppled by now. Last month, Russia vetoed a western bid for the United Nations Security Council to call out Tehran for failing to prevent its weapons from falling into the hands of the Houthis

  • Roger Snellman

    Yes, Houthis are idiots. Threatening shipping and then attacking an oil tanker in international waters is the best way to make friends and influence people. On the other hand it might bring an international coalition to drop fire on their heads. What could possibly go wrong for Houthis?

    • Sinbad2

      The only way to stop the American/Saudi attacks on Yemen is to hurt the US, and petrodollars are the blood in Americas veins.
      A UN sponsored peace keeping force would either force the US/Saudi invaders to back off, or expose their crimes.

      • Roger Snellman

        That tanker was headed for China not the US. China gets far more Saudi oil than the US even with Iran back in the picture. Obviously Iran and Russia encourage Houthis to attack every Saudi tanker headed for China because they want China completely dependent on their oil. China on the other hand may not take kindly to Houthis messing with their oil imports and thereby increasing the price they pay for Saudi oil.

        • Sinbad2

          So what, you just don’t understand that petrodollars are a tax the US levies on every country in the world who buys oil, or anything else in US dollars.
          If you stop the US collecting it’s tax on the world, you stop the US killing people.

          • Roger Snellman

            Then we agree the Houthis only hope of survival is stopping the flow of oil out of the Mideast. How long until they are put out of their misery?

          • Sinbad2

            So you want to exterminate the Houthis, I would rather stop the US exterminating the Houthis.
            You love death, I love life, never the twain shall meet

          • Roger Snellman

            Did my sarcasm go way over your head or are you just playing stupid to extricate yourself from the losing position in this discussion.

            In other words if you really believe stopping the flow of oil out of the Mideast is the best move for the Houthis then they are on fool’s errand and a suicide mission all rolled into one. If you want to stop extermination of the Houthis then convince them to seek peace instead of war. In reality their Iranian masters are determined to feed Houthis to the dogs of war down to the last man, woman and child.

          • Ronald

            There is and has been a naval blockade of Yemen for a couple of years, so it is highly doubtful that Iran has smuggled anything into Yemen, or are their “masters”. They are also Shia Muslims, but on that basis, do you hold Iran responsible for the Houthi rebellion ?

    • 5commando

      I’ll agree that attacking shipping like this is a bad move. Yemen is the most probable point of future deployment for US troops beyond any place they aren’t now. Attacks like this do much to heighten that possibility.

      • Ronald

        There you have the reason for this war against the Houthi, they will not accept the Saudi Sunni as their “king” so they must be conquered. Can’t have them in control of those waters.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    awesomeness :)))
