Houthi Missile Strikes Ship; ‘First Successful’ Attack After U.S. Launched Rea Sea Patrolling
Maersk Hangzhou, a container ship, has been hit by a Houthi missile in the Red Sea. After this, an American warship, the USS Gravely, shot down two more ballistic missiles while responding to a distress call along with the USS Laboon, the military said. The missiles were fired from a part of Yemen controlled by Iran-backed Houthis, according to U.S. Central Command. The Singapore-flagged, Denmark-owned ship was sailing from Singapore to Egypt’s Port Said. This is the first successful attack since the launch of U.S.-led patrols in the Red Sea.
