Houthi Terrorists, Undeterred By Weak Biden Response, Destroy Underwater Sea Cables: Report

 Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists have reportedly destroyed underwater cables between Europe and Asia, causing serious communication disruptions between the two continents.

Israel’s Globes publication said that the Houthis destroyed four underwater cables in the Red Sea between Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and Djibouti in East Africa.

The cables belong to AAE-1, Seacom, EIG and TGN, the report said. The countries that have been the most negatively impacted are the Gulf states and India.

The damaged cables, which cost hundreds of millions of dollars, will take months to repair, and it will likely be difficult for the four companies to find repair firms that would be willing to work in the area because they could be attacked by the Islamic terrorists.

The Houthis have launched at least 48 attacks against merchant vessels in the region over the last four months, impacting approximately 55 countries around the world that depend on commerce passing through the Red Sea.

The attacks on the underwater cables come as the Houthis remain undeterred by President Joe Biden’s weak response to their terror attacks on shipping vessels, including ships owned by U.S. entities.

The limited responses the Biden administration has deployed against the Houthis have been coalition strikes with the United Kingdom with support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, and New Zealand.


The most recent round of coalition strikes happened late last week when the U.S. and U.K. reportedly struck 18 Houthi targets. Little-to-no footage of any of the strikes has been released to the media.

“The targets included Houthi underground weapons storage facilities, missile storage facilities, one-way attack unmanned aerial systems, air defense systems, radars, and a helicopter,” U.S. Central Command said in a statement. “These strikes are intended to degrade Houthi capability and disrupt their continued reckless and unlawful attacks on international commercial and U.S. and U.K. vessels in the Red Sea, Bab AI-Mandeb Strait, and the Gulf of Aden.”

The statement highlighted how the Houthi attacks have “disrupted humanitarian aid bound for Yemen, harmed Middle Eastern economies, and caused environmental damage.”

The strikes were not part of the multinational freedom of navigation actions performed under Operation Prosperity Guardian, which is a group of nations that have dedicated resources to protecting merchant vessels that are seeking to use the Suez Canal.
