Houthi forces based in Yemen declared that they had launched drones and rockets at ships belonging to Britain, the US, and Israel, in the most recent in a series of attacks on shipping to show solidarity with the Palestinians in the ongoing Gaza war.

The Iran-backed organization said that it targeted a British vessel as well as several US frigates in the waters of the Red Sea.

At the same time, in the Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea, it had attacked two Israeli vessels sailing to the Israeli ports.

The operations were carried out within the last 72 hours, Yahya Saree, a Houthi military spokesperson, mentioned over a televised statement, without delivering additional details of these attacks.

Britain and the US have been working on retaliatory attacks against the Houthis.

The US-led forces reportedly destroyed a mobile surface-to-air missile system in a Houthi-controlled region of Yemen on Saturday, per the US Central Command.

US forces shot down an uncrewed aerial vehicle over the waters of the Red Sea, its statement declared, adding that a coalition vessel also engaged, detected, and destroyed an inbound anti-ship missile.

No injuries or damages were noted. Earlier, the British security company Ambrey stated that it had obtained information implying that a vessel was attacked in the waters of the Gulf of Aden on Sunday, roughly 102 nautical miles to the southwest of Mukalla, based in Yemen.

The firm said that vessels in the setting were instructed to exercise caution and report suspicious activities.

It did not declare who was responsible for the attacks or provide further facts. Separately, on Sunday, a missile landed close to a vessel in the Gulf of Aden.

Still, there was no damage to the ship or injuries to crew members in this incident, 59 nautical miles to the southwest of the port of Aden, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations agency conveyed.

The vessel’s master informed that a missile impacted the water near the vessel’s port quarter, UKMTO explained this in an advisory note.

No damages to the ship were reported, and crew members are safe, it summed up. It did not declare who fired the missile or provide further details.

It was not instantly clear if the attacks briefed by the British agencies were precisely like the latest incidents asserted by the Houthis.

Houthi attacks have disrupted worldwide shipping via the Suez Canal, compelling firms to re-route to more expensive journeys across southern Africa.

The US and Britain have also launched strikes on Houthis in Yemen.
