Insecurity in Bab el-Mandeb inflicting heavy costs on Zionist regime

Tehran, IRNA – Senior experts with the Israeli regime’s Ministry of Treasury believe that insecurity in the strategically important Bab el-Mandeb Strait is inflicting heavy costs on the regime.

Zionist media said on Tuesday that the Israeli ships are travelling round Africa to avoid Yemeni attacks.

Yemen began a string of attacks against Zionist and Zionist-linked ships in Bab el-Mandeb and the Red Sea several weeks ago in retaliation for the regime’s crimes against Gazan people.

The Arab country has pledged to keep its maritime siege against the Zionist regime as long as the war in Gaza continues.

A report by Israel Hayom says the attacks have caused heavy costs on ships importing or exporting goods to or from Israeli ports.

The report has estimated 67 to 100 percent additional costs on cargo ships bringing in iron products to the occupied lands and exporting scrap.

The change of route has also increased costs by some 200% for Ro-Ro ships carrying vehicles to the occupied lands, the report further noted.
