Israel said on Sunday that Yemen’s Houthis had seized a British-owned and Japanese-operated cargo ship in the southern Red Sea, describing the incident as an “Iranian act of terrorism” with consequences for international maritime security, APA reports citing Arab News.

“There were no Israelis on the ship,” it said.

The statement added that the vessel had a crew of 25 members from Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Philippines, and Mexico, with no Israelis among them.

The Israeli military said in an earlier statement the ship seizure took place in the Red Sea.
