In the Red Sea, Yemen’s Houthis targeted a ship owned by Greeks, There were no survivors on board a Greek-owned cargo ship near the Red Sea port of Hodeidah after a small boat and missile attack claimed responsibility for the attack. Houthi rebels said they were responsible for the attack.

At the time of writing, no casualties had been reported as a result of the attack on Wednesday on the cargo ship. As far as the ownership of the vessel is concerned, it is unclear whether or not it is connected to Israel in any way.

Iran’s backed group has been in control of the capital Sanaa as well as most of the country’s population centers since the coalition led by Saudi Arabia began its war against them. As part of the support it is giving to the Palestinians under Israeli attack in Gaza, it has been launching scores of drones and missiles against shipping in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden since November. As a result of several attacks against them, one ship has been sunk, another vessel has been seized, and three sailors have been killed.

As a result of the Houthis’ attacks on the Tutor coal carrier with an unmanned surface boat, drones, and ballistic missiles, they said the vessel suffered serious damage and was in danger of sinking.

In a statement issued Wednesday, maritime security firm Ambrey said the ship had been hit about 68 nautical miles (126 kilometers) southwest of Hodeidah.

US Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a statement that the impact of the [unmanned surface vessel] caused severe flooding in the engine room, and that the impact of the UUV caused substantial damage to the engine room. “This is the first time the Houthis have used a vessel in this way,” CENTCOM said.

It will be reported on Wednesday that the Liberian-flagged Tutor was taking on water because of damage to the engine room of the vessel. The UK Maritime Trade Operations, which acts as a conduit between ship operators and military and security forces, said the vessel was not under the control of the crew due to the damage.

International trade is on the rise

The UKMTO reported an incident which happened on the stern of a cargo ship after a small white object collided with it along with an “unknown airborne projectile” which also struck the ship.

A bomb was dropped on it twice, once from the air and once from the sea. The Greek official who spoke on condition of anonymity said that no injuries have been reported. According to the report, when the Tutor was hit it was sailing towards India when it took a hit.

The London Stock Exchange Group data shows the Tutor loaded at the Port of Ust-Luga, Russia, on May 18 and discharged at the Port of Said, Egypt, on June 9, according to the data provided by the London Stock Exchange Group. According to the airline, the ship was scheduled to make a stop at Aqaba, Jordan, as its next stop.

Since February this year, the Houthi attacks have disrupted global trade as ship owners have been forced to reroute ships away from the crucial shortcut around the Suez Canal, resulting in retaliatory strikes from the United States and the United Kingdom.

In addition to the joint military operations with the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an Iranian-backed armed group, the Houthis also said they conducted two separate military operations targeting locations in Israel’s cities of Ashdod and Haifa on Wednesday. In response to the latter’s request, the operation was confirmed.

In the aftermath of Hamas’s attacks on Israel on October 7, which resulted in the death of more than 1,200 people and the capture of some 250 others, the Houthi attacks continue as US, Egyptian and Qatari negotiators attempt to mediate a ceasefire in the Gaza war.

Gaza health authorities reported that more than 37,000 Palestinians have died as a result of Israel’s air, ground and sea attacks on the Palestinian territory, according to reports from Israel.
