Ships Broadcasting ‘No Contact’ With Israel Safely Transit Red Sea

 Member of the Yemeni Ansarallah resistance movement’s Supreme Political Council, Mohammad Ali al-Houthi, said on 21 January that dozens of commercial vessels not linked to Israel or bound for Israeli ports have been allowed to pass safely through the Red Sea.“You can visit the Tanker Trackers website, which specializes in tracking ships, to know that the simplest solution for ships to pass safely while crossing the Red Sea is to announce the phrase ‘We have no relation to Israel’ on their automated identification system,” Houthi said. “This solution has proved its effectiveness, as 64 ships safely passed through the sea by saying this phrase,” he added.

‘Operation Al-Aqsa Flood’ Day 75: UNSC Postpones Ceasefire Vote

The UN Security Council postponed for the second time a vote on a ceasefire resolution in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday. The resolution was initially scheduled for a vote on Monday. However, Security Council members are debating the draft’s wording to avoid another U.S. veto. On December 8, the U.S. rejected a ceasefire call, while the UK abstained. U.S. foreign officials warned that support for Israel’s bombardment of the Gaza Strip is isolating Washington from its allies and could cost it diplomatically in the long run. On Tuesday, the National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby confirmed that the U.S. is “still working through the modalities of the resolution.”
