Following the impact of two missiles in the Gulf of Aden, two ships caught fire

Bayan News – International media reports, citing two British maritime agencies, have stated that two ships caught fire after being hit by two missiles in the Gulf of Aden.

British company Ambrey announced on Sunday (June 9) that a cargo ship flying the flag of Antigua and Barbuda was hit by a missile 83 miles southeast of Aden.

According to the report, the fire was later contained.

Prior to the publication of this news, the British Maritime Trade Operations Organization also announced that they had received a report from the captain of a ship regarding an incident 80 nautical miles southeast of Aden.

The Ambrey report states: “The ship, traveling at 8.2 knots in direction southwest in the Gulf of Aden, was hit by a missile. There was a fire, but it was extinguished.”

These two agencies have stated that no casualties were reported in the incident, and the ship is moving towards its next port.

Houthi militia, who control the most populous parts of Yemen and are supported by the Islamic Republic, have been attacking ships off the coast of Yemen for months, claiming that these attacks are in solidarity with Palestinians fighting in Gaza against Israel.
