Houthis Target U.S.-Owned Ship After U.S. Bombs Yemen Again

HeadlineJan 16, 2024

Tension is continuing to escalate across the Middle East. On Monday, Houthi forces from Yemen fired a missile that hit a U.S.-owned cargo ship in the Gulf of Aden. The attack came after the U.S. and U.K. bombed Houthi sites in Yemen on Thursday and again on Friday. Houthi officials have vowed to keep attacking ships linked to Israel, as well as U.S. and British ships, until a ceasefire is reached in Gaza.

Yahya Sarea: “In support of the grievances of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, who are subjected to the most heinous types of massacres by the Zionist entity, and in response to the American and British aggression against our country, the naval forces of the Yemeni Houthi armed forces, with the help of Allah Almighty, carried out a military operation targeting a U.S. ship in the Gulf of Aden with a number of appropriate naval missiles, and the hit was accurate and direct.”
