    And despite the satellite footage of the supposed hit on the USS Eisenhower with a massively blasted hole on the forward deck being a little suspicious & fake, as well as the US denying anything happened, I still think something took place.  

    Might not have been such a heavy strike as the supposed Chinese satellite video release that is circulating all over the internet, but likely something quite serious and is being kept under wraps.  

    There are only one or two reasons, at most, for an aircraft carrier of that size & caliber to punch it at flank speed.  For those not familiar with that military nautical term 'Flank Speed,' it stands for a military ship's maximum speed.  For the Eisenhower to purportedly have moved at flank speed in a heading to Jeddah Port, SA almost immediately after the Houthis claimed to have struck it is pretty suggestive.

    That seems too much of a coincidence including all the denying which never produced a current photo of the carrier.  The rumors seem to be going both ways, also, with another posting of a carrier burning up but was actually that of the USS Bonhomme LHD when it sustained a massive fire at San Diego Naval Dock.  Crazy goings on.

    Just attacking the carrier and it's group is enough to break the US navy prestige and encourage other groups to do the same thing .

    "We uncovered a large American-Israeli spy network operating in various institutions since 2015" 


    The network collected important information on various fields and provided it to hostile intelligence agencies. The network was able to influence decision-makers, penetrate state agencies, and work to attract officials. 
    The network worked to influence, control, and strike the economy by collecting information and carrying out acts of sabotage. 
    The network worked to harm agriculture by increasing agricultural pests in the country with the aim of encouraging agricultural imports. 
    The spy network sought to harm health in the country by spreading epidemics, harming education and spreading moral corruption. 
    The network provided American and Israeli intelligence with military information with the aim of weakening the army and its capabilities. 


    The American-Israeli spy network conducted intelligence activities targeting the military and manufacturing capabilities of our armed forces http://t.me/megatron_ron

    Heading towards the moment of truth. Drones over the Suez Canal checking on any evidence of damage.


    S p r i n t e r F a m i l y@SprinterFamily

    The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Dwight Eisenhower left the coast of Yemen and headed for the Suez Canal after two Houthi attacks on the aircraft carrier.

    Operation Prosperity Guardian is coming to an end. 

    The Houthis have targeted and continue to target whatever ships and vessels they want. The bombing did not change the Hutus' decision to press on. The Houthis have ignored US attempts to negotiate behind the scenes with the Houthis to stop the attacks in exchange for sanctions relief and removal from the terrorist list.

    That would be hilarious, wouldn't it.  Good thing is, it won't even get close because if there's anything the Egyptian military excells at, is it's ADS system and how widespread & advanced it is.  To the point where the last time the Houthis lobbed one of their drones or cruise missiles and it got too close for comfort was on April 8th when it came within range of the eastern Red Sea coast of Sinai and one of its popular resorts called Taba, which is not even close to the Suez Canal and actually quite a good distance from the it and it was blasted out of the sky.  Some of the debris landed near the shores of the resort.

    And it was taken out with of the domestically built short/medium-ranged Skyguard Amoun ADS.

    Yemeni Conflict: News #3 - Page 29 562115

    Yemeni Conflict: News #3 - Page 29 562118

    Here you can see it's positioned somewhere along Egypt's lengthy shoreline with the Red Sea.

    Yemeni Conflict: News #3 - Page 29 562119

    Even accompanied by its 35mm auto guns for those pesky, low-flying projectiles.

    Yemeni Conflict: News #3 - Page 29 562096

    This is basically the surface to air version of the AIM-7 Sparrow and it's not even one of the top systems in the EADS.  I doubt the Houthis would want to target anything in Egypt anyway, let alone succeed in any fashion.

    What the Houthis have certainly succeeded at is disrupting the passage of ships through the Bab El Mandab Strait, cutting the Suez Canal's revenues by almost 50%.  Despite all the policing being done there to curb that disruption, the strait is only 30km wide at its widest point and much narrower considering its designated deep lanes.  Their goal is to disrupt ships headed to Israel, not the Suez Canal.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that the US offered to take a group off a list of Terrorsts and would reduce sanctions if they stopped attacking them?

    Isn't that like giving in to the terrorists or something?

    Something the Americans claim they can never do...

    And the real irony is their terrorist status was achieved by fighting a coalition of foreign countries attacking their country with them defending themselves, while the offer to remove the label of terrorist is to stop them attacking and sinking ships sailing through their waters.

    The irony of course is neither acts are terrorism if they were done against Russia or China... they would be called heroes and freedom fighters and the world should be supporting them against evil.

    Targeted vital and important targets in the cities of Ashdod and Haifa.

    Targeting the TUTOR ship in the Red Sea.

    Used weapons : drone boat, a number of drones, and ballistic missiles. The operation led to the ship being seriously hit, and it is at risk of sinking.

    I said when the British especially, but also HATO started attacking Russian targets in the Black Sea using unmanned sea surface suicide drones that it was going to bite them in the arse.

    Honestly I thought it would take longer, but this is just fine.

    They thought they were safe because Ukraines navy does not exist any more and is mostly fictional so how could Russia retaliate?

    Such drones are not easy and simple and anyone has them... running them out into a large body of water and finding a suitable target and managing to hit it is not something most countries could do... HATO had a C4ISTAR network to find suitable targets and ships sailing to and from Odessa to launch these drones from.

    Can't tell if Russia assisted the Houthies in any way, but I do hope they did.

    Especially because these sorts of target ships have very small crew compliments so the risk of people being killed is actually rather low.

    Military ships on the other hand have lots of bodies to burn or drown.

    TUFAN-1 , it seems they have enough numbers.

    * Sea drone with 150 kg payload .
    * Speed :35 mile per hour.
    * Low visibility and high maneuverability.

    The Americans said that they will remove the Ansar Allah from terror list ? So the outcome of these attacks so far as we can see is not stopping the Genocide in Gaza . I go back to my example of the domino effect . These attacks on ships exerting only an indirect and weak influence on the Israelis . The Zionists must face the consequences of their actions . People who can stop the mindless killings are responsible . Even if all Israeli ships are stopped from using the Red Sea , still Israel uses it's ports in the Med , or it's airfields for importing weapons . The war is a class war , they turn it into an ethnic or religious or national war !

    New targets :

    Eisenhower carrier .
    Transworld navigator ship .
    4 ships in Haifa port.
    Shorthorn Express ship in Med sea.

    Last two operations were done as a cooperation between Houthi and Iraqi resistance .

    Seriously?  I mean, I support the Houthis 100% and their incredibly bravery for a courageous cause but let's not get carried away here unless they've suddenly acquired long-range stealth bombers or something.  Hitting Haifa from Yemen is not only a huge distance but requires tremendous precision guidance and accuracy, let alone target a ship in the Mediterranean!?

    The strait of Bab El Mandab yes, of course that's almost coastal to Sanaa # 1 and points Red Sea @ #2 to the Gulf of Suez #3 is somewhat plausible although it might be very tough to get past Egyptian air defenses along its west coast of the Red Sea & points south of Sinai.  But 4 all the way to the closest point in the Mediterranean and 5 in Haifa not only seems impractical, but I highly doubt Saudi Arabia will allow a missile or drone or anything to fly over its airspace not to mention Jordan or frankly, even the Sinai as we saw the one time in April and the drone that flew close to Tabaa in Egypt was intercepted.  Are we missing something, or are the Houthis throwing hot air with this Haifa/Mediterranean targeting?

    Targeting Haifa was  a cooperation between Houthi and Iraqi resistance , so may be the launch area is Iraq or even Lebanon and such statement is only to confuse the israelis  Very Happy

    Also They have Wa’id drones which range is more than 2000 km ,the local version of the Iranian Shahed 136 .

    There is nothing in theory stopping the Houthis from hijacking a ship and sailing it north, using it as a base of operations. Could be what they'll do.

    Depends where they launch from.... they might sail weapons to Iran and through Iranian territory and through Iraqi territory through Syrian territory and launch things a few hundred kms away from its targets in Israel.

    Israel has not made a lot of friends in the region.

    Honestly it would be practically impossible to get it through the Suez Canal.  Every ship transiting the canal has to have a Canal Authority Pilot board the ship to ensure its safe passage through mostly the critical portions of the canal.  

    While most captains are experienced, some aren't familiar with certain hazards such as depth of water in narrow sections even if they're marked with buoys & markers etc.  There's also one-way and two-way traffic areas that can become very tricky.  All that is avoided by having a canal authority pilot board each ship for most of the passage and I would imagine it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible to sneak a bunch of Houthis on board with their drones & missiles and not be discovered since the ship's captain will either have to be at gunpoint or collaborating with them, the latter being close to impossible and easily discovered.

    But stranger things can and have happened so I wouldn't say it's impossible, just close to impossible.

    I think @Ahmedfire's theory that since it was a collaboration with Iraqi resistance that most likely they were fired from points in western Iraq.  That's also a much shorter distance and over Syria & Lebanon might not be high SAM threat areas for interception.

    They don't have to get it through the canal. They have to get it closer to Israel, and then strike through Egyptian or Saudi airspace. And if the Egyptians or Saudis start shooting down drones and missiles on Israel's behalf, then it won't look good for them.
