CENTCOM: The Houthis fired at Greek and British ships

The US Central Command (CENTCOM) reported on the X social network that the Houthis fired six anti-ship ballistic missiles at the Greek bulk carrier MV Star Nasia and the British cargo ship MV Morning Tide. Both ships sustained no significant damage and continued to their destinations, CENTCOM said.
The Central Command clarified that the MV Star Nasia was sailing under the flag of the Marshall Islands in the Gulf of Aden. Three missiles were fired at the vessel, one of which was intercepted by the American destroyer USS Laboon. Another three missiles were fired by the Houthis at the Barbados-flagged MV Morning Tide. CENTCOM said all three missiles failed to hit the ship and it continued on its way.
Since Israel's war with the Palestinian movement Hamas began, Yemen's Houthis have claimed to be attacking ships and vessels in the Red Sea that the Houthis say belong to Israel. Since January, the US has repeatedly struck Yemeni territory. Washington is calling it a response to the Houthis' continued attacks on merchant and military ships in the Red Sea. On February 5, the USA and Great Britain carried out 15 airstrikes in Yemen./BGNES
