The Red Sea region has experienced escalated tensions since the commencement of the Israel-Palestine conflict, reaching new heights on October 7th. Notably, on October 19th, the Yemeni-based Houthis initiated their first missile and UAV attack on Israeli territory, resulting in subsequent retaliatory actions against the country. Of significant concern is the Houthis’ public declaration on November 14th, announcing their intent to obstruct all shipping lines associated with Israel from traversing the Red Sea, thereby elevating the threat level in the region.
