Yemenis Extend Eid Greetings to Palestinians from Seized UK Ship

TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Yemenis conveyed warm greetings to the Palestinian people on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, as they performed prayers aboard a UK-owned cargo ship seized last November in a strategic Red Sea passage.

Worshippers, having observed a month-long fast, gathered on Wednesday for Eid prayers aboard the Galaxy Leader cargo vessel captured by Yemeni naval units on November 19.

In an expression of solidarity, they reached out to Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip, marking the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month, according to Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen TV.

"You (Palestinians) are not alone. The Yemeni nation stands by your side until [final] victory,” affirmed the worshippers.

Eid al-Fitr signifies a significant religious observance for Muslims worldwide, concluding a month of fasting from dawn to sunset during Ramadan.

The holiday begins on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th lunar month, determined by the sighting of the new moon by local religious authorities. Special prayers are offered in open spaces or large halls with congregational participation.

Meanwhile, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, leader of Yemen's Ansarullah resistance movement, asserted that Yemen is engaged in a comprehensive war against the Israeli regime. He cited operations targeting Israeli-affiliated ships and interests in response to the brutal attacks on Gaza.

Speaking in a televised address on Tuesday, Houthi extended Eid greetings to the Muslim Ummah (community), Yemenis, Palestinians, and resistance fighters.

He condemned the involvement of American and British forces in supporting the Zionist regime's crimes against Palestinians and the blockade on Gaza.

Yemen has consistently expressed support for Palestine since the Israeli onslaught on Gaza commenced on October 7, following Palestinian resistance operations against the occupying forces.

The Yemeni Armed Forces declared their commitment to continuing attacks until the relentless Israeli assaults cease, which have resulted in significant casualties and compelled major shipping and oil companies to alter maritime routes.

Yemeni Armed Forces have said that they won’t stop their attacks until unrelenting Israeli ground and aerial offensives in Gaza, which have killed at least 33,360 people and wounded another 75,993 individuals, come to an end.
