Sudden! Three more containers have been attacked!


A few days after the attacks were suspended, the Houthi forces made a comeback. According to the latest CCTV News report, on April 10, local time, the Houthis claimed that,Its maritime forces launched operations against four ships in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.According to reports, the Houthi armed forces used drones and missiles to carry out precision strikes on the target.

During the operation in the Red Sea, the Houthis claimed to have attacked a US warship as an act of solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza.

In the Gulf of Aden, the Houthi armed forces once again attacked two cargo ships "Darwin" (MSC Darwin) and "Gina" (MSC Gina), which are alleged to be related to Israel. In addition, the Houthis claimed to have carried out an attack on an American container ship called the Maersk Yorktown.
Danish shipping giant Maersk said its US-flagged vessel, the Maersk Yorktown, was not the target of a new missile strike in the Gulf of Aden. Maersk received reports that a Houthi missile landed about 10 nautical miles from the ship, and there was no indication that the ship was the intended target.
It is worth noting that the "Gina" (MSC Gina) was targeted again in the Gulf of Aden after being attacked in the Arabian Sea on the 6th. The Houthis warned,The danger zone will be expanded and attacks on ships supporting Israel will continue.He said that the purpose of the Houthi armed forces is not only to prevent ships "associated with Israel" from passing through the Arabian Sea, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, but also to prevent these ships from sailing through the Indian Ocean to the Cape of Good Hope in Africa.

At present, the three container ships attacked are in the waters near Djibouti in the state of anchoring.

The "Maersk Yorktown" () was a container ship built in 2004 with a capacity of 2500TEU, flying the United States flag, owned by the United States, and escorted by the United States warships USS La Boone (DDG 58) and USS Mason (DDG 87). The ship is operated by Maersk and its voyage history is as follows:

Maersk decided a few months ago not to send any more ships through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait. This applies both to container ships owned by liner shipping companies and to ships on U.S. defense missions owned by U.S. subsidiaries.

The US military revealed on Tuesday that it had successfully destroyed an anti-ship ballistic missile fired by the Houthis over the Gulf of Aden, presumably targeting the US cargo ship Maersk Yorktown ". Fortunately, none of the United States, coalition forces or merchant ships suffered casualties or property damage in this incident.

At the same time, the Russian Satellite News Agency reported that after the Houthis announced their attacks on Israeli and American ships, U.S. and British fighter jets carried out four air strikes on multiple Houthi military positions in the western Yemeni province of Hodeidah. The Houthi-controlled Masira TV station also confirmed the news that Hodeida International Airport was hit by air strikes that day.

According to a report by China Central Radio and Television in Hodeida, on the evening of April 10, local time, three explosions were heard in Hodeida, accompanied by the sound of fighter jets.

The Suez Canal-Red Sea, as an international shipping route, connects Asia with the Mediterranean and Europe, and is a key channel for maritime trade between Asia and Europe. However, since the outbreak of a new round of Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Houthi armed forces have frequently launched attacks in the Red Sea waters, forcing many international shipping companies to change routes or suspend flights to avoid potential risks. This has led to longer voyages and significantly higher freight costs.
