Yemeni rebels prepare a minefield of 200 sea mines for a British aircraft carrier

The likelihood of destroying a British aircraft carrier in the Red Sea was very high.

After the British aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth successfully passed the Suez Canal and entered the waters of the Red Sea, it became known that the Yemeni rebels, against the backdrop of threats from the UK, could release about 200 sea mines into the waters of the Red Sea. Each of these mines can easily cause critical damage to an aircraft carrier or ships from an aircraft carrier strike group.

Today, the waters of the Red Sea contain a large number of mines and improvised explosive devices that impede normal navigation. Apparently, the Yemeni rebels are ready to take a desperate step and attack a British aircraft carrier, especially since the Houthis are armed with cruise and ballistic missiles, drones, as well as unmanned boats that can undermine even a large-displacement warship.

At the moment, the aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth continues to navigate the waters of the Red Sea. At the same time, it is reported that aircraft (drones and fighters) periodically rise from the deck of the aircraft carrier, which are used, presumably, to control the situation along the route of the Queen Elizabeth.

Quote: "... amid threats from the UK ...."
And why does the Minister of Defense threaten them all ...?
Oh, hour by hour is no easier ... 200 minutes, then go and the merchant fleet is a threat. After all, sea mines must be placed at certain depths and this is not easy in the clear waters of the Red Sea - at depths of up to 30 m -50 m they will probably be visually visible from aircraft.
