Recordings by Egyptian warships proved recently how Houthi militias blocked humanitarian aid ships carrying medical and urgent assistance for suffering Yemenis.

Voice recordings detected by Egyptian warships in the Red Sea revealed that Houthis have seized “tens of aid ships along with their staff.”

At least 34 aid ships have been previously stopped by Houthis from entering al-Hudayda port, according to Major general Ahmed al-Assiri. In addition to other ships that were seized, and the fate of its staff remains unknown.
