The Houthis claim an attack on an American ship

The Houthis, an Iran-backed movement that supports the Palestinian Hamas movement in its conflict with Israel, claimed responsibility on Monday for an attack on a US military ship off the coast of Yemen.

The movement's spokesman, Yahya Saree, said that the Houthi forces “carried out a military operation targeting the American military cargo ship Ocean Gas in the Gulf of Aden.”
