Houthi Attack Kills 3 People in First Known Fatalities in Campaign Against Red Sea Trade Ships

HeadlineMar 07, 2024

U.S. military officials said Wednesday a Houthi missile attack on a commercial ship in the Gulf of Aden killed at least three people. It’s the first known deaths as a result of the Houthi campaign against Israel- and U.S.-linked vessels. The ship that was attacked appears to have been Barbados-flagged, Greece-operated and Liberia-owned. U.S. and U.K. forces have launched multiple attacks inside Yemen since the Houthi strikes started in protest of Israel’s war on Gaza.
