Report: One Crew Injured in Missile Attack on UAE Ship in Red Sea

One crew member sustained injuries when an Emirati ship carrying medical supplies was attacked by a missile fired by Iran-backed Houthi militias, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported, citing a statement issued by the Command of Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy in Yemen. 

As informed, the incident occurred after the vessel departed Yemeni Port of Mokha in the Red Sea.

There were no damages to the ship.

The command said that a follow-up of the attack is underway, with perpetrators being tracked down.

Furthermore, the command warned that the Houthi rebels are continuing with arms and ammunition smuggling activities into territories of Yemen, according to SPA. Therefore, the command urged the international community to put pressure on Houthi militias and Ali Abdullah Saleh’s forces in accordance with the United Nations Security Council Resolution to prevent such practices.

Separately, the United Nations Security Council called on June 15 for the immediate mobilization of funds pledged to Yemen at a conference in Geneva on 25 April and for all Member States to fully implement an arms embargo as required by relevant Council resolutions.

It also urged the Houthis and forces allied to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh to cease all attacks at Saudi Arabia.
