Eid Al-Ghadir is observed by Shia Muslims across the world. According to Shia tradition, the event commemorates the gathering at Ghadir Khumm, when Prophet Muhammad designated Hazrat Ali as his successor and the first in the continuing line of hereditary Imams.

Galaxy Leader was hijacked by the Houthis in the Red Sea near the Yemeni port city of Hodeida on November 19, 2023. The prized possession was turned into a tourist attraction shortly after the rebels gained control, as per reports.

However, only males are allowed to visit the hijacked cargo ship for One USD per trip.
