US 5th Fleet reports “maritime threat” in Red Sea

The US Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet is ready to maintain the safety of shippers in the region, said a spokesman Cmdr Joshua Frey on Friday night. He spoke in the wake of an alert from the US Transportation Department’s Maritime Administration, which read: “A maritime threat has been reported in the Red Sea in the vicinity of Yemen. The nature of the event is potentially increased hostilities that threaten maritime security.” The nature of the threat and its source were not specified.

    Debka, if you don’t have ANY details what so ever why create rumors, anxiety, fear etc…..is it just for the sake of maybe claiming later that “we were the first to report” ?

    EU’s INSTEX Barter Plan Created by Germany, France & Britain to Keep JPOCA & Circumvent Sanctions works this way. EU Importers Paid by EU Exporters in Advance & Iran Exporters Paid by Iran Importers in Advance Avoiding Banking Transactions. The System is Dependent on China, France, Germany, & Russia Pumping $50 Billion To Work? So far, INSTEX has come up short? Limited to a few Million of Medicine & Food Offset Balances to Exchange Goods with Iran without direct Transfers of Money to avoid $anction$.
