SANA'A: A US-owned cargo ship was hit by a missile off the south coast of Yemen on Monday. The UK Maritime Trade Operations security firm Ambrey said that the attack targeted US interests in response to US military strikes on Houthi military positions in Yemen.

According to reports, a fire broke out on board the Marshall Islands-flagged, US-owned bulk carrier, but it remains seaworthy and there were no injuries. It said that the vessel was assessed to not be Israel-affiliated.

The attack took place on a ship bound for Israel. The Houthis have claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack took place on the Gibraltar Eagle, a cargo ship owned by Eagle Bulk, a US-based company. Reports said the ship sustained only minor damage and no one was injured.
