Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists in Yemen have been attacking large shipping vessels in the Red Sea, targeting those with ties to Israel.

The attacks, including threats and UAV-launched strikes, have disrupted international commerce.

“Houthi forces contacted the Motor Vessel MSC ALANYA, a Liberian flagged vessel that was traveling north in the southern part of the Red Sea and threatened to attack it,” U.S. Central Command said.

“The Houthis directed the vessel to turn around and proceed south. Although there were no U.S. ships in the area, U.S. forces maintained direct communications with the vessel, and the ALANYA continued north.”

Just a couple of hours later, “a UAV launched from Houthi held territory struck the Liberian flagged Motor Vessel AL JASRAH as it was travelling south in the Red Sea,” the statement said.

“The AL JASRAH immediately broadcast a mayday signal that said the crew was fighting a fire caused by the attack.”

Roughly four hours later, “Houthi forces launched two ballistic missiles towards the international shipping lanes in the Bab el-Mandeb strait,” the statement added.

“One of these missiles struck the Liberian flagged MV PALATIUM 3, which broadcast a mayday call and reported that the vessel was on fire. The USS MASON has responded to that request. The other missile likely missed any ships.”

U.S. officials are concerned about President Biden’s response and his decision to delist the Houthis from the official terrorist list.
