After heavy US Strikes , Another Ship Attacked In Red Sea by Yemeni forces

A merchant vessel reportedly came under attack in the Red Sea a day after the United States launched strikes against the Houthis (Ansar Allah) in Yemen

Fighter jets of the “American-British coalition” carried out on May 22 six strikes on the airport of the western Yemeni port city of al-Hodeidah which is controlled by the Houthis, the country’s Al-Masirah TV reported without providing any further details.

The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO), a detachment of the Royal Navy, said on May 23 that it had received a report of an incident 98 nautical miles south of al-Hodeidah.

Separately, British security firm Ambrey said it received a report that a merchant vessel was suspiciously approached 68 nautical miles southwest of al-Hodeidah and had undergone what it described as “missile attack.”

“No injuries or damages were reported,” Ambrey said in an advisory notice.

The Houthis have not yet acknowledged the attack reported by UKMTO and Ambbrey, though it typically takes them hours to issue a claim
