Ansarallah spokesman: US pressure forcing shipping companies to avoid Red Sea even if there is no Zionist link


Sana’a revealed on Tuesday that there is American pressure to prevent shipping companies from crossing the Red Sea.

Ansarallah spokesman and head of the Sana’a negotiating delegation, Muhammad Abdulsalam, said in his tweet on the X platform: “What a number of shipping companies are announcing is the suspension of their work claiming increased risks in the Red Sea as a result of American pressure and intimidation. This is an inaccurate position and is only in line with tendentious American propaganda.”

ما تعلنه عدد من شركات الشحن تعليق عملها بدعوى ارتفاع المخاطر في البحر الأحمر هو نتيجة الضغوط والتهويلات الامريكية وموقف غير دقيق، ويتماشى فقط مع الدعاية الأمريكية المغرضة، وهناك مئات السفن تعبر مضيق باب المندب بشكل يومي.
إننا نجدد التأكيد أنه لا منع لأي سفينة عدا المرتبطة بالعدو…

Abdulsalam confirmed that there are hundreds of ships crossing the Bab al-Mandab Strait on a daily basis, reiterating that no ship is banned except those linked to “the criminal Zionist enemy or those heading to its ports in occupied Palestine.”
