The ship’s crew is safe and the ship continues its journey as usual.
On the Red Sea a cargo ship has been attacked again, the UKMTO (UKMTO) who are responsible for the safety of British maritime traffic say.
According to the authorities, the ship was attacked with two missiles in the morning local time while it was in the Bab al-Mandeb strait, where Yemen’s Houthi rebels have repeatedly attacked cargo ships. The ship’s crew is safe, and the ship continues its journey as normal.
According to the Ambrey maritime security company, a Greek ship flagged to the Marshall Islands was fired upon by missiles twice in less than half an hour, resulting in some damage to the ship.
According to Ambrey, the ship also has a private, armed security team.
Yemen’s Houthi rebels have been attacking cargo ships in the Red Sea for months. The rebels say their attacks support the Palestinians in Gaza. As a result of the attacks, several shipping companies have instructed their ships to avoid the Red Sea route and go around South Africa instead.
About 12 percent of the world’s cargo traffic normally passes through the Red Sea sea route.
