Yemen’s Houthi Military Capabilities in the Red Sea Battle (Vedio)

Sheba Intelligence | 2023-12-19 02:13 PM UTC


The continued attacks by the Ansar Allah (Houthi) group on ships in the Red Sea have prompted several countries, including the U.S. and the UK to deploy more warships to help protect commercial vessels in the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden. 


Yesterday, the U.S. declared the formation of a joint task force seeking to guard the shipping lanes in the Red Sea. 


So far, there have been no counterstrikes on the Houthi sites in Yemen. But a military clash between international forces in the Red Sea and the Houthi group remains possible. If a naval battle between the two sides breaks out, the Houthis have sufficient and diverse weapons that can cause a serious headache for the U.S. and its partners in the Red Sea. 


Over the past few months, Sheba Intelligence has covered the military movements of the Houthi group and the types of weapons they have developed and accumulated over the past years.
