A British ship was damaged in an attack off Yemen

A British maritime authority revealed that a ship was damaged as a result of a missile attack off the coast of Yemen, south of the Red Sea.
The British Maritime Trade Operations Authority said in a statement on its website, “The captain of a ship reported that it had been subjected to two attacks at a distance of 14 nautical miles.”
She added: “After that, the second attack on the ship was what is believed to be the launching of two missiles, which resulted in damage to the ship.” The British Maritime Authority advised ships to “cross with caution and report any suspicious activity.”
The attack comes the day after the Ansar Allah group announced targeting an Israeli ship (MSC Darwin) in the Gulf of Aden, with naval missiles and drones, and attacking targets in the Eilat region, south of Israel, with ballistic and winged missiles.
On Thursday, the leader of Ansar Allah, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, announced that the group’s forces had targeted 102 ships linked to Israel in the Red and Arab Bahrain, the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean, during 202 days of the “aggression” on Gaza, at a rate of one ship every two days, in support of the Palestinian factions in the Strip.
It expanded the scope of its attacks in the Red and Arabian Seas and the Gulf of Aden, against ships linked to Israel or heading to its ports, and American and British ships, to include the Indian Ocean.
On October 10, Ansar Allah announced that it would support the Palestinian resistance factions in confronting the Israeli army in Gaza, with missile and air attacks and “other military options,” if the United States intervenes militarily directly in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in sector.
From time to time, the Ansar Allah group declares that it is part of the resistance axis that includes Iran, Syria, Lebanese Hezbollah, and Palestinian resistance factions, confirming its readiness to participate in the fighting alongside the Palestinian resistance.
Since September 2014, the “Ansar Allah” group has controlled the majority of the governorates in central and northern Yemen, including the capital, Sana’a, while on March 26, 2015, an Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia launched military operations in support of the Yemeni army to reclaim those areas from the group’s control.
