The United States has announced the launch of a multinational force to protect trade in the Red Sea after attacks by Yemen’s Houthi rebels forced at least a dozen shipping lines to suspend operations.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Monday that Bahrain, Canada, France, Italy, the Seychelles and the United Kingdom would be among the countries joining the 10-nation “multinational security initiative”.

“Countries that seek to uphold the foundational principle of freedom of navigation must come together to tackle the challenge posed by this non-state actor,” Austin said in a statement, describing the attacks as an issue that “demands collective action”.

The announcement comes after the US and UK navies said over the weekend that their destroyers had shot down a total of 15 drones in the waterway.

Companies avoid Red Sea


At least 12 shipping companies, including the Italian-Swiss giant Mediterranean Shipping Company, France’s CMA CGM and Denmark’s AP Moller-Maersk, have suspended transit through the Red Sea due to safety concerns.

UK oil giant BP on Monday became the latest firm to announce it would avoid the waters.

“In light of the deteriorating security situation for shipping in the Red Sea, BP has decided to temporarily pause all transits through the Red Sea,” the company said in a statement.

“We will keep this precautionary pause under ongoing review, subject to circumstances as they evolve in the region.”

Houthi attacks have effectively rerouted a significant portion of global trade by forcing freight companies to sail around Africa, imposing higher costs and delays for energy, food and consumer goods deliveries.

About 12 percent of global trade passes through the Red Sea, which connects to the Mediterranean Sea via the Suez Canal, including 30 percent of container traffic.


Why is this waterway so important and who does it inadvertently affect when conflict arises?

The Iran-aligned Houthis have ramped up drone and missile attacks on vessels in key shipping lanes since the start of the war in Gaza, targeting ships alleged to have links to Israel or Israelis.

The rebel group said on Monday it had attacked the Norwegian-owned Swan Atlantic and the MSC Clara using naval drones to show solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.

Swan Atlantic’s owner, Norway’s Inventor Chemical Tankers, said in a statement the vessel had no link to Israel and was managed by a Singaporean firm.

There were no injuries reported by either vessel.

Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, a senior Houthi official and spokesperson, told Al Jazeera on Monday that the group would confront any US-led coalition in the Red Sea.

The Houthi rebels are a political and military group in Yemen that emerged in the 1990s. They have been involved in a civil war since 2015, fighting against the Yemeni government and a coalition of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia. The Houthis have been accused of committing human rights abuses, including the use of child soldiers, torture, and extrajudicial killings. However, they have also been credited with providing social services and infrastructure in areas under their control.

The Akhdam, also known as the Muhamasheen, are a marginalized community in Yemen that has experienced centuries of discrimination, exploitation, and poverty It is unclear whether the Houthis have specifically targeted or protected the Akhdam community. However, the Houthis have been accused of committing human rights abuses against civilians, including the use of landmines and indiscriminate shelling.

It is important to note that the situation in Yemen is complex and multifaceted, and it is difficult to make definitive statements about the actions of any particular group. The conflict has resulted in a humanitarian crisis, with millions of people facing food insecurity, displacement, and disease. The international community has called for an end to the violence and a negotiated settlement to the conflict.

AkhDam People Of YEMEN

The Houthis are a Zaidi Shia movement that rebelled against the Yemeni government. They emerged in the 1980s as a reaction to the spread of Salafism and the perceived marginalization of the north. They fought a series of wars with the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, who later allied with them in the civil war that started in 2014. The Houthis control much of northern Yemen, including the capital Sanaa, and face a Saudi-led coalition that backs the internationally recognized government.

Sanaa is home to many Akhdam, In YEMEN they make up 14% of YEMEN’S Population , much like how African Americans make up 13-14% of the United States Population.

Tahalyam-Psalms 83:1-8

(A Song or Psalm of Asaph.) Keep not thou silence, O ALUAH: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O ALUAH.
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. 
Whenever there is conflict The Children Of Yasharal are always affected
All of our enemies who have taken crafty counsel against us continue today to deprive and marginalize The scattered Children Of Yasharal in the name of conflict. This ultimately results in the harm of YAHUAH’S “HIDDEN ONES”
But our redemption draws nigh YASHARAL, these things must come to pass before we can enter the land promised to us.
Keep Enduring.

One step closer to our deliverance! Now ten nations, one Bahrain, why did they join the Europeans to protect their interest?
Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Verse 20, The beast is taken and the false prophet, the end!
