India-bound cargo ship hijacked by Houthis, says Israel

A cargo ship sailing from Turkey to India was hijacked by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in the Red Sea, claimed the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) in a statement Sunday. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office called it an act of Iranian “terrorism”.“Israel strongly condemns the Iranian attack against an international vessel,” read a statement from the office of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.“This is another act of Iranian terrorism and constitutes a leap forward in Iran’s aggression against the citizens of the free world, with international consequences regarding the security of the global shipping lanes,” it added.

The vessel, Galaxy Leader, was transporting vehicles from Korfez, Turkey to Pipavav in Gujarat when it was captured en route in the Red Sea.This comes a month after a US Navy warship shot down drones and cruise missiles fired from Yemen which appeared to be heading for Israel.
