The Central Command of the United States has announced that Yemen’s Houthis have attacked the Chinese oil tanker “Huawei” in the Red Sea with four anti-ship ballistic missiles.

CENTCOM stated that the attack occurred early on Sunday, March 23, targeting a Chinese-owned oil tanker.

According to the Houthis’ statement, at 4:25 PM, they fired a fifth missile towards the “Huawei,” which struck the vessel, causing minor damage.

The US Army’s Central Command emphasized that these attacks resulted in no casualties.

Earlier, CENTCOM had reported three fatalities and four injuries following a Houthi missile attack on a ship in the Gulf of Aden.

It’s worth noting that Yemen’s Houthis began targeting commercial vessels in the Red Sea in support of the Palestinian people after the Gaza war erupted.

However, according to Bloomberg, the Houthis have stated that they do not attack Chinese or Russian ships in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.
