Japanese automaker Suzuki announced on Tuesday that it was suspending production of its plant for a week in Hungary due to delayed supply of components as a result of events in the Red Sea, according to Kyodo.

Work at the plant was suspended from January 15 to January 21, the agency said, adding that logistical problems in the Red Sea led to supply delays, especially with regard to car engines.

In mid-November, the ruling Ansar Allah (Houthi) group in northern Yemen began attacks on Israeli-linked ships in the Red Sea in solidarity with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, leading to a sharp drop in shipments through the Suez Canal.

In response, the United States announced a joint operation with ten other countries to protect navigation in this region.

For its part, Ansar Allah threatened to target the ships of the countries participating in this coalition, and several clashes took place at sea between the Houthis and US military forces.
