Houthis target commercial ship in Red Sea

Iran-backed Houthi rebels on Monday targeted a commercial cargo ship in the Red Sea whose final destination was an Iranian port, the US military said.

The Houthis fired two missiles from Yemen towards the Bab al-Mandeb Strait between 3:30 a.m. and 3:45 a.m.

The terrorist fighters targeted the MV Star Iris, a Greek ship flying the flag of the Marshall Islands that was traveling in the Red Sea from Brazil, the US Central Command said.

The ship’s final destination was Bandar Iman Khomeini, Iran, a port city on the Persian Gulf.

β€œThe vessel is reported to be seaworthy with minor damage and no crew injuries,” Centcom posted on X.

The Houthis have been backed by Iran and have threatened the transport of goods in and around the Red Sea in recent months in retaliation against Israel following its war with Hamas.


The United States has launched a series of airstrikes against the Houthis in recent weeks in an effort to deter the group’s actions.
