Recently, all outgoing and incoming vessels of Israel have been continuously hijacked by Hotah rebels in the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea. Due to all these, now Israel is building its new Maritime Route, however, this route is quite complicated and on this route, Israel will have to face the problem of sending and receiving almost 10X expensive more vessels. Currently, as we see, who is ultimately benefiting more in the Israel-Hamas war, it is Iran, Yemen, and Egypt because after the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Gulf of Aqaba are so difficult for Israel. It is said that the transportation of food vessels is a big burden for Israel and Europe. All of them have different controls on the Red Sea between Saudi and Egypt, but when any vessel goes to the Gulf of Aden, it ultimately has to face Yemen’s Houthis and Yemen’s army.
Why the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden are biggest problems for Israel, Saudi, Egypt, and the US?
Although it is fine for Israel to fight Hamas, Gaza, Hezbollah, and proxy militias, it is very difficult to fight geographically. Because of the Hamas–Israel war, Israel’s economy, exports, imports, and transportation are probably going to suffer a lot because this war is going on continuously. Because Israel has the support of the US, Europe, and Western countries but Saudi, Egypt, and the US have great importance in the Red Sea because it shows who is ultimately saving Israel from Houthi and Yemen. If we look at the Strait of Hormuz, Gulf of Aden, and Red Sea, they are the world’s largest economic corridors which are completely controlled by Iran and if Iran wants, it can create an economic crisis between Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Why Israel, Saudi, and the US can’t retaliate against Houthi and Yemen?
Israel cannot ignore all this and from this perspective, Israel is not attacking Houthi and Yemen because attacking Yemen because of the Red Sea, and Gulf of Aden is like turning US and Europe against Israel. And anyway, there are no army bases in or Europe in Yemen, so in such a situation, it is very difficult to negotiate with Yemen. And recently the Israel–Hamas war is bringing together the government of Yemen and the Houthis. And due to this Israel-Hamas-Gaza war, Iran, and Saudi Arabia seem to be coming closer.
