International companies that responded to Sana’a’s decision and suspended its passage via the Red Sea

In response to Sana’a’s decision, which it imposed in solidarity with Gaza, which is being subjected to a genocidal war by the Zionist occupation entity, a number of international navigation companies, including Israeli companies, have announced the suspension of shipping operations across the Red Sea. The lifting of the aggression and siege on Gaza is a condition for canceling this decision.

Taiwanese shipping company Yang Ming announced on December 18th that it would redirect the routes of ships sailing through the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden to the Cape of Good Hope for the next two weeks.

Following three attacks on ships associated with Israel by the Sana’a Navy, the Israeli shipping company “ZIM”‘s container ship altered its course and is now circumnavigating Africa rather than crossing via the Suez Canal and the Bab Al-Mandeb Strait off Yemen.

Sana’a confirms in its military statements that it will not hesitate to target any ship associated with the Zionist entity or heading towards its ports until the siege on the Gaza Strip is lifted. It calls on ships heading to all ports around the world, except Israeli ports, to keep the identification device open.
