Ship attacked by missiles off Yemen coast

A ship was damaged when it was targeted twice with multiple missiles off Yemen’s coast, in the latest attack on international shipping in the Red Sea to be claimed by Houthi rebels.

The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations security agency says the attack took place southwest of the Yemeni port of Mokha.

In the first attack, the ship “experienced an explosion in close proximity to the vessel which was felt by the crew on board,” UKMTO says on social media platform X.

“The second attack on the vessel consisted of what is believed to be two missiles, which resulted in damage.”

Hours earlier, the British maritime security firm Ambrey also reported an attack off the port of Mokha.
