The Federal Nuclear Cabinet today considered whether Belgium would join a potential European mission against Yemen's Houthi rebels who have been attacking commercial ships in the Red Sea for weeks. The majority was still divided on the matter in the House of Representatives on Thursday. According to Foreign Minister Hajja Habib (MR), Belgium has a “duty” to participate, but the Socialists and Greens have refrained from doing so.

The military ship is not intended to carry out attacks – as the Americans and British did in their bombing of Yemen, but it is intended to protect commercial shipping ships in the Red Sea. Methods and Rules of engagement (Read: The rules that our soldiers must adhere to) will be determined by the government and at the European level.
