Yemen’s Houthi Militia Target Pakistan-Bound Ship in Red Sea Attack

The Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen claimed responsibility for launching a missile attack on the MSC United VIII, a Pakistan-bound container ship in the Red Sea.

MSC Mediterranean Shipping confirmed the attack but reported no injuries to its crew, stating that the ship successfully evaded the assault.

In a separate incident, Israel revealed that its aircraft intercepted a hostile aerial target in the same region.

Red Sea

Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Sarea announced in a televised address that the group targeted the vessel, accusing its crew of ignoring warnings.

Additionally, the Houthis claimed an attempted drone attack on Israel, specifically targeting Eilat and other areas. The spokesperson did not confirm the success of these operations.

The US Central Command disclosed that American fighter jets, a navy destroyer, and other assets intercepted and downed 12 drones, three anti-ship ballistic missiles, and two cruise missiles fired by the Houthis in the Red Sea. No damage to ships or reported injuries occurred.

Since October, the Houthis have been targeting commercial vessels in the Red Sea, claiming Israeli connections or routes to Israel, expressing solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.

The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations Authority reported two explosions off the coast of Yemen related to missiles and drones near a vessel, with no reported injuries.

These incidents follow the recent announcement by the United States of a multinational maritime security initiative in the Red Sea in response to Houthi attacks on vessels. Some shipping lines have suspended operations through the Red Sea, opting for longer routes around Africa.

The Houthis have vowed to persist with their attacks until Israel ceases its conflict in Gaza, warning of further actions, including potential targeting of U.S. warships if the militia is attacked.
