Houthis Share Footage & Documents Confirming Saudi-led Coalition Shipped Weapons On Seized UAE Vessel

Screen grab from the footage released by the Houthis.

On January 8, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) released photos, a video and documents confirming that the Saudi-led coalition shipped weapons on a UAE-flagged vessel that was recently seized by their fighters.

The cargo vessel, named “Rwabee,” was seized by Houthi fighters in the Red Sea off the coast of the Yemeni city of al-Hudaydah late on January 2.

Documents shared by the Houthis spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, confirm that the vessel made at least six trips between the Yemeni island of Socotra and the Saudi Red Sea port of Jizan between November 5 and December 28 of last year.

The vessel shipped loads of weapons, ammunition and military equipment, including dozens of armored vehicles and several fast assault crafts.

Several Photos and a video, which were apparently found on the personal devices of the vessel’s detained crew, confirm the Houthis claims.

When Rwabee was first captured by the Houthis, the Saudi-led coalition claimed that the vessel was moving medical and health equipment from a dismantled Saudi field hospital in Socotra to the port of Jizan. Medical equipment was indeed found on the vessel. However, weapons were also found.

The seizure of the vessel was a major blow to the Saudi-led coalition who is apparently still struggling to secure Yemen’s waters.
