Yemen’s Houthis carry out attacks on Israeli city of Eilat and cargo ship in Red Sea
CAIRO: Yemen’s Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sarea said on Tuesday the group launched an attack with missiles on a MSC United commercial ship in the Red Sea after it rejected three warning calls.
Sarea also said the group carried out drone attacks on the southern Israeli city of Eilat “and other areas in occupied Palestine.”
The Iran-aligned Houthis, who control much of Yemen, have disrupted world trade for weeks with attacks on ships passing through the Bab al-Mandab Strait at the southern end of the Red Sea in what they say is a response to Israel’s war in Gaza.
