Yemen’s Houthi militia has claimed an attack on a Zodiac Maritime-managed LPG carrier in the Mediterranean Sea and an MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company vessel in the Arabian Sea.

The statement by military spokesman Yahya Saree came amid a trend of Houthi forces claiming attacks on vessels in a wide range of areas.

Saree claimed in a post on X that the militia’s forces “fired several missiles at the Israeli ship Essex in the Mediterranean Sea while it was violating the decision ban that prevents entry into occupied Palestinian ports”.
