Yemen’s Houthi Rebels Missile Strikes Tanker, Crew Heroically Extinguishes Fire After US Airstrike Targets Rebels

-

The crew of the Marlin Luanda, a Marshall Islands-flagged oil tanker, successfully put out a fire caused by a missile attack from Yemen’s Houthi rebels. This incident has added to the complexity of the Red Sea crisis, which has been exacerbated by the conflict between Iran-backed rebels and Israel’s actions in the Gaza Strip. The tanker, carrying Russian-produced naphtha, was targeted in the attack, drawing attention to the involvement of various international players in the region. The United States Military’s Central Command confirmed that U.S. forces had intervened to thwart a Houthi anti-ship missile aimed at the Red Sea, and the USS Carney had to intercept a Houthi missile targeting it. 

The Marlin Luanda, with a crew of 25 Indian nationals and two Sri Lankans, was assisted in extinguishing the fire by the Indian Navy’s guided-missile destroyer INS Visakhapatnam. The vessel is now en route to a safe port after the successful containment of the fire. 

The attack has raised concerns about the impact on maritime trade in the region, with China urging for calm and the United States seeking China’s support in pressuring Iran due to its significant oil trade with the country. Russia has condemned U.S. and UK involvement in the conflict, while also engaging with the rebel group in Moscow. 

The situation in the Red Sea has escalated, with Houthi attacks targeting ships and reports of suspected Somali pirate activities. The international community is closely monitoring the developments in this critical global trade route between Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.
