Greek-owned bulk carrier struck by Houthi missile off Yemen coast

·

A Greek-owned bulk carrier was struck by a missile off the coast of Yemen in the Red Sea on Tuesday, in an event that has been linked to a series of previous attacks by Houthi-led rebels.

According to Ekathimerini, Ambrey, a British maritime security firm, stated the Malta-flagged Greek bulk carrier “Zografia” was apparently targeted and struck by a missile while traveling in the Red Sea, 76 nautical miles northwest of Yemen’s coastal city of Saleef.

The damage to the vessel is described as minor and no injuries have been reported among the crew of 24 people – three Filipinos, 20 Ukrainians and one Georgian national, with no Greeks onboard.

Zografia was heading from Vietnam to Israel without any cargo, and it will now sail to the Suez Canal in Egypt for a thorough examination of all damages incurred.

Houthi attacks on ships in the area since November have harmed businesses and concerned global nations, escalating Israel’s more than three-month conflict with Hamas militants in Gaza.
