Israeli media reported that this came after the attack carried out by the Yemeni group "Ansar Allah", against three commercial ships and an American destroyer, noting that "the special force that Israel seeks to form will work within the framework of a multinational coalition in the Bab al-Mandab Strait area." "We are aware of reports of attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea, and will provide information as it becomes available." This comes after the Yemeni group "Ansar Allah" announced, last Sunday evening, that the group's naval forces carried out an operation targeting two Israeli ships in Bab al-Mandab, the ship "Unity Explorer" and the ship "Number Nine".The spokesman for the Yemeni armed forces of "Ansar Allah", Yahya Saree, said that "the first ship was targeted by a naval missile, and the second ship Saree added that "the Yemeni armed forces continue to prevent Israeli ships from navigating in the Red and Arab Seas, until the Israeli aggression on our steadfast brothers in the Gaza Strip stops."
