The Kingdom has not confirmed the incident immediately. The ‘United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operation’, run by the British Navy, said it had clearly received information about the incident and is currently investigating the case.
On Tuesday, black smoke was seen emanating from the Port of Yanbu in Saudi Arabia. Officials informed about the incident on this port located on the banks of the Red Sea on Tuesday. At the same time, a private security company said that a ship has been attacked here. So far, the real reason for this attack has not been revealed. But this incident has happened when ships of Iran and Israel have also been targeted on this route.
The Kingdom has not confirmed the incident immediately. The ‘United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operation’, run by the British Navy, said it had clearly received information about the incident and is currently investigating the case. On the other hand, private maritime security company ‘Daryad Global’ said that it has received reports that a ship has been attacked near the port. However, it did not share much information about the attack.
Smoke seen from the ship
On the other hand, the Maritime Security Company ‘Neptune P2P Group’ reported that black smoke was seen near the southern entrance of Yanbu harbor. The British Maritime Security Company Umbre reported an incident in western Saudi Arabia between Yanbu and Rabig ports. Earlier in the morning, Ambrey said smoke was seen emanating from a ship at Yanbu, Saudi’s oil shipping port. Many ships are standing at this port. King Fahad Port Control in Yanbu broadcast a message by Marine VHF Radio. In this, ships were asked to increase vigilance.
Have the Hooties attacked?
Significantly, Huti rebels have targeted many targets in Saudi Arabia in recent times. In such a situation, there is also a possibility that the rebels are not behind this attack. But the distance from Yemen’s border to Yanbu port is too much. In such a situation, it is believed that Hooties do not currently have any such weapon, which can reach here. Let me tell you that two weeks ago, I had come to a university in Saudi Arabia, near the border of Yemen. This university was attacked by Hootis.
