Bajoran impulse ships.

An impulse ship was a spacecraft limited to impulse propulsion.

The Bajoran Militia employed impulse ships of various designs. In 2375, the Bajoran Republic deployed twelve of those vessels in a blockade around Derna, commanded by Colonel Kira Nerys, to prevent the Romulans from supplying weapons to their hospital complex. The move was largely symbolic, as the ships themselves posed little military threat to the Romulans. (DS9: "Shadows and Symbols")

The term "impulse ship" was first coined in the script for "The Siege", where it was applied to the Bajoran interceptors that were attacking Kira's sub-impulse raider.
According to the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual, the Bajoran raider was identified as a "Bajoran impulse ship".
