The “American ship” that was attacked by the Houthis turned out to be owned by a Greek company and was flying the flag of the Marshall Islands. It was carrying corn and had traveled from Brazil to Bandar Khomeini, one of Iran’s largest ports. This is significant because Iran is a key ally of the Houthis in Yemen.
The ship was reportedly hit by two missiles, but it did not suffer a direct hit and only sustained minor damage. Fortunately, there were no casualties. The owner of the ship, Star Bulk Carriers, has had another ship attacked by the Houthis in the Red Sea recently.
This is the first time the Houthis have attacked a ship headed to Iran, marking a new development in their targeting of international shipping in the area. It is a concerning trend that is causing alarm among shipping companies and international authorities.
