On the 22nd local time, Yahya Saraya, spokesman for the Houthi armed forces in Yemen, issued a statement saying that according to CCTV news, they used missiles to attack the US freighter OCEAN JAZZ in the Gulf of Aden.

Saraya said in a statement that the Houthis will continue to attack ships associated with Israel on the Red Sea routes until Israel stops the war in Gaza and lifts the blockade of the Gaza Strip. The Houthis did not specify the exact time of the attack in their statement.

Public information shows that the "Ocean Jazz" is a heavy cargo transport ship flying the American flag. According to information released on the website of the U.S. Department of Defense, the "Ocean Jazz" was contracted by the U.S. military in 2017 to transport, load and unload large military equipment for the U.S. Navy.

In addition, on the 22nd local time, the U.S. Central Command released news that the Yemeni Houthi armed forces’ claim of launching an attack on the U.S. freighter Ocean Jazz in the Gulf of Aden was false. The U.S. military has been maintaining communication and contact with the freighter. , the freighter is currently traveling safely.

The British maritime security company Embry said on the 22nd that the US Navy and the freighter "Ocean Jazz" still maintain contact.

Since the outbreak of a new round of Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Yemen’s Houthi armed forces have used drones and missiles to attack targets in the Red Sea many times. The United States and the United Kingdom have launched consecutive air strikes against Houthi armed targets in Yemen since January 12, causing many casualties. Some countries have condemned the actions of the United States and Britain, believing that this is a violation of Yemen's sovereignty and will aggravate regional tensions.

The Houthi armed forces warned: "Named" Japan and may launch another attack on Japanese-related ships.

In an interview with Japanese media, a senior Houthi armed official warned: Japan and other countries that do not support the people of Gaza will be "punished by God."

According to Japanese media reports on January 22, Buhayti, a member of the Political Bureau of the Houthi armed forces in Yemen, hinted in an interview that there may be another attack on Japanese-related ships, claiming that "countries like Japan that do not support the people of Gaza, will be punished by God."

He also said that the Houthi armed forces' actions in the Red Sea are to support the people of Gaza. Buhati also said that whether the Galaxy Leader cargo ship will be released will be determined by the future direction of the Palestinian-Israeli situation.

According to previous media reports, on November 19 last year, the Houthi armed forces hijacked the cargo ship "Galaxy Leader" and have detained it ever since. The ship belongs to a British company and is operated by Nippon Yusen Kaisha. Among those connected to the ship's ownership is a wealthy Israeli businessman. According to Japanese media reports in December last year, the "Galaxy Leader" is being used by the Houthi armed forces as a tourist attraction and open to tourists.
