Yemen’s Houthi rebels seized a ship in the Red Sea, in a string of assaults that showed the reach of Iran-allied militias on the second anniversary of America’s killing of a top Iranian general.
The Houthis later aired footage from the Rwabee on their Al-Masirah satellite news channel. It showed military-style inflatable rafts, trucks and other vehicles on the vessel, a landing craft that lowers a ramp to allow equipment to roll on and off. One brief clip showed what appeared to be a collection of rifles inside a container.
Saudi state television alleged the Houthis transferred the weapons onto the ship.
