The Houthis (Ansar Allah) have released footage of a UAE-flagged vessel that was seized by their fighters in the Red Sea off the coast of the Yemeni coastal city of al-Hudaydah late on January 2.
The Saudi-led coalition claimed that the cargo vessel, named “Rwabee,” was moving medical and health equipment from a dismantled Saudi field hospital in the Yemeni island of Socotra to the Saudi port of Jizan.
However, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, denied the coalition’s claims. At a press briefing, the spokesman said that the vessel took part in “hostile acts” and “moved arms” in Yemen’s waters for weeks before being seized.
The footage released by the Houthis confirmed that Rwabee was carrying a number of military vehicles of the Saudi military, including one equipped with what appears to be a SATCOM [satellite communication] system.
The vessel was also carrying at least two fully-equipped fast assault boats of the Saudi General Directorate of Border Guard.
Light weapons, including dozens of assault rifles, and military equipment, such as body armors and helmets, were also found aboard Rwabee.
After seizing Rwabee, the Houthis warned the Saudi-led coalition against attacking it. Brig. Gen. Sari said on Twitter that any attack on the vessel will threaten the lives of its multinational crew.
The arms and equipment found on Rwabee are not of high-value. Still, the seizure of the vessel was a major blow to the Saudi-led coalition who does not apparently have full control over Yemen’s waters. The Houthis may attempt to seize other vessels in the near future.
Wow… nice medical equipment…we can use these equipment in Trinidad in the Caribbean to HELP the racist corrupt black Pnm govt who rapes our coffers dry, why little money goes to buy ventilators, medicine,etc. A little island, now with the HIGHEST DEATH RATE IN THE WORLD
“You stupid woman” as Rene used to put it… these are all only spare parts for kindergarten kids toys.
Fremen of Yemen cannot stop embarassing Mohammed bin Harkonnen and the House of Globohomo
Yep, it’s all medical and health equipment from a dismantled Saudi field hospital in the island of Socotra to the port of Jizan under the UAE flag. Wahhabi and Zion are clowns of the world. liars for so long yet so bad it still to this day. Fuking rtded apes.
I guess the “Israeli” owned house of Saud’s child soldiers won’t be getting their equipment now!
Well done Ansarallah. By the detailed video shown, the Saudi and Emirati pimps lost substantial equipment that should arm quite a lot of Yemeni freedom fighters. The Saudi idiots must have hired a Ukrainian crew to be so off course and sailed right into the lions den. The trucks and body armor is a great addition to growing Ansarallah inventory.
Aw sweet, they nicked an old Mercedes-Benz truck. No telling how long that puppy’s been in service.
