Houthi resistance takes on Zionist regime in the Red Sea

The Galaxy Leader, was seized in the Red Sea and redirected to the Port of Hodeidah in Yemen by the Houthi-led Yemeni Armed Forces.

On Nov. 19, an Israeli-linked ship, the Galaxy Leader, was seized in the Red Sea and redirected to the Port of Hodeidah in Yemen by the Houthi-led Yemeni Armed Forces. 

The cargo ship was targeted because the vessel is owned, in part, by shipping magnate Abraham “Rami” Ungar, who is in the Haaretz list of 30 richest people in Israel. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tried to downplay the ship’s ties to the Zionist regime. The ship is owned by Ray Car Carriers, a motor vehicle import company that is one of the largest of its type in Israel. 

Ungar, the owner of Ray Car Carriers, is also known for financing far-right politicians in Israel. He has been implicated in numerous high-profile scandals, including a bribery case involving arrangements to bribe a political aide of then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. The Prime Minister and Ungar attempted to pay the aide, Shula Zaken, to not testify against Olmert and take the fall in the corruption case that was being mounted against him and his administration. 

Ungar is also a close friend of the current Israeli Minister of Defense, Yoav Gallant, of the far-right Likud party. 

The takeover of the Galaxy Leader ship was a well-targeted, righteous act of solidarity with the people of Palestine. Yahya Sare’e, the spokesperson for the Yemeni Armed Forces, made a statement in which he proclaimed, “The Yemeni Armed Forces will continue to carry out their military operations until the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank stops.” 

Statements from the YAF have also confirmed that they have fired a salvo of winged missiles targeting Zionist occupying forces in the Eilat region (occupied Umm Al-Rashrash, Palestine) and will continue to strategically target the Zionist regime until they end their aggression towards the people of Palestine.

Iran unveils new hypersonic missile

The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made a visit on Nov. 19 to the Ashura University of Aerospace Science and Technology for the unveiling of a new hypersonic missile that can be used in self-defense against U.S.-Israeli aggression. 

The missile goes by the name Fattah-II, an upgraded version of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ first domestically produced hypersonic missile bearing the same name unveiled earlier this year in June. 

Iranian state media have described Fattah-II as a hypersonic glide vehicle, a projectile that can maneuver and glide at hypersonic speed to its target and is capable of posing a serious challenge to low, medium, and high altitude defense systems. 

The exhibition also showcased missile defense systems, including their Mehran and 9-Dey defense systems, as well as an Iranian-made drone named “Gaza” in solidarity with the people of Palestine’s resistance. Also, during this visit, Khamenei condemned the evils of racism that take root in Zionism and in the imperialist ideologues that support the settler-colonial state of Israel. 

Khamenei noted: “The Zionists consider themselves as a superior race, and they consider the rest of the human race to be inferior. That is why they have killed several thousand children without any remorse.” 

He went on to condemn Western imperialist leaders for their support of Zionism and racial discrimination by adding, “When the President of the United States, the Chancellor of Germany, the President of France and the Prime Minister of England support and help such a racist regime with all the things that they claim, it means that these men support racism, which is one of the most despised issues in the world.” 

Khamenei continued: “If they were against it, their opposition would have shown itself in them taking action regarding the issue of Gaza and Palestine.” 

He talked about how Israel’s bombardment of hospitals, women, and children in Gaza is also evidence of the Zionist regime’s frustration at their inability to defeat Hamas and suppress the resistance of the people of Palestine. Also, during the address, Khamenei called on Islamic and Arab nations to stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine and cut political ties with Israel.

From Iraq to Lebanon, Pan-Arab solidarity

This week, the U.S. military violated the sovereignty of Iraq by mounting an attack on the Islamic Resistance of Iraq-aligned group Kataeb Hezbollah (Hezbollah Brigades). 

In response, the armed forces of the Islamic Resistance of Iraq retaliated on Nov. 23 by hitting two bases of the U.S. occupation forces in western and northern Iraq with four drones. Also, on Nov. 23, a day after an Israeli airstrike killed five Hezbollah fighters, there are reports that more than 50 missiles were fired at Zionist military targets in northern occupied Palestine from Hezbollah forces located in southern Lebanon. 

This makes it one of the largest bombardments targeting the Zionist regime since the start of the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation in October. 

From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!
