Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the military spokesman for the Houthis, said in a statement on Thursday, "The first joint operation targeted two ships that were carrying military equipment in the port of Haifa."

He pointed out that the second operation targeted “a ship that violated the decision to ban entry to the port of Haifa in occupied Palestine,” noting that “the two joint operations were carried out with several drones and the hit was accurate.”

The spokesman added: "The Israeli enemy must expect more qualitative joint operations during the coming period until the aggression stops and the siege on Gaza is lifted."

Saree called on all Arab armies to "participate in support operations for the Palestinian resistance in fulfilment of their religious and humanitarian duty towards the Palestinian people."

The Houthi attacks began in the Red Sea last November. The group says it targets ships linked to Israel or those heading to it, thus supporting the Palestinian people in Gaza.

The group expanded its operations to include targeting American and British ships after it was limited to those linked to Israel.
