The threat looms large as tensions surge in the southern Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, sparked by escalating confrontations between Yemen’s Ansar Allah group and the United States. Ansar Allah persists in targeting vessels associated with Israel or the US and UK, offering support to Palestinian armed factions in Gaza, particularly the “Qassam Brigades” of Hamas, against Israel, as reported by Alarabiya.net.
A grave concern emerges as Ansar Allah eyes the disruption of submarine Internet cables traversing the Red Sea near Yemen’s coast, potentially jeopardizing global communications and the economy. The vulnerability of vital underwater communication networks renders them susceptible to Ansar Allah’s threats, posing risks to nations worldwide.
Alarabiya.net highlights Ansar Allah’s Telegram channel disclosing a map of communication and Internet cables across the Red Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Arabian Sea, and the Gulf. These cables, essential for global connectivity, underscore Yemen’s strategic importance in the region.
Tensions escalate further in the Red Sea’s south as Ansar Allah targets vessels linked to Israel in response to the Gaza conflict. The US initiative to form an international coalition against Ansar Allah’s Red Sea attacks faces challenges in garnering full ally support.
On November 13, 2023, Ansar Allah declares proactive measures against Israeli vessels in the Red Sea, vowing relentless operations until Israel halts its Gaza aggression ongoing since October 7, 2023.
