A ship was targeted with missiles in northwestern Yemen

A British maritime authority revealed today, Monday, that it had received a report of an incident 54 nautical miles northwest of Mokha in Yemen.

The British Maritime Authority said in a statement that the authorities are investigating the incident, and advised ships passing in the area to be cautious and report any suspicious activity.

The ship was targeted by three missiles, and Embry estimates indicated that its targeting was due to the commercial relations between its registered operator and Israel.

She added that the targeted ship was a container ship flying the flag of Malta while it was on its way from Djibouti.

Earlier today, US Central Command announced that its forces clashed yesterday with 5 drones over the Red Sea. She added that the marches represented a threat to US and coalition ships and commercial ships in the region.

The Yemeni Houthi group said on Friday that it had targeted a British oil ship in the Red Sea with a number of naval missiles, resulting in a “direct hit.”

The Houthi military spokesman, Yahya Saree, also confirmed in a statement that his forces succeeded on Thursday in shooting down an American MQ9 drone in the sky of Saada Governorate, northern Yemen, with a missile.

Several ships in the Red Sea were subjected to attacks launched by the Houthi group, which they say come in response to the Israeli war on Gaza.

It is noteworthy that since November 19, the Houthi group has targeted more than 100 ships in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea, with drones and missiles.

The United States and Britain direct air strikes on Houthi sites with the aim of disrupting and weakening the group’s ability to endanger freedom of navigation and threaten global trade.
