Oil spilled in Houthi attack on Rubimar ship

WASHINGTON: An oil spill occurred in an attack by Houthi terrorists on the ship Rubimar

A February 18 attack on the cargo ship Rubymar in Yemen by Houthi groups “caused severe damage to the ship and leaked an 18-mile oil slick,” US Central Command said Friday/Saturday night.

The U.S. military also announced that it destroyed seven anti-mobile anti-ship missiles that the Yemeni Houthi group was preparing to launch at targets in the Red Sea.

The Houthis have been carrying out attacks in the Red Sea and Arabian Sea against commercial ships linked to Israel or visiting its ports, which they say is in support of the Israeli war-torn Gaza Strip. Destruction since the seventh of October last.

On the other hand, American and British forces started strikes on their bases from January 12.

Houthi attacks in the Red Sea have led to higher shipping insurance costs, forcing most shipping companies to avoid crossing the Red Sea, which passes about 12% of global maritime trade. Their attacks on ships in the Red Sea and Bab el-Mandab Strait raise concerns about shipping through the critical waterway.

On February 17, the United States announced that the designation of the Yemeni Houthi group as a terrorist organization “has come into effect in response to its repeated attacks on civilian vessels in the Red Sea.”
