Houthis Claim Responsibility for Attack Against Bulk Carrier

Date:

What to Know:

The Houthis have claimed responsibility for an attack against the Marshall Islands-flagged bulk carrier “M/V Genco Picardy” in the Gulf of Aden. It was previously reported that a vessel was hit by an explosive stone in the area, causing a fire, but no casualties.

The Statement:

In a statement, the Houthis said that “The naval forces of the Yemeni Armed Forces carried out a targeting operation against the American ship (Genco Picardy) in the Gulf of Aden with a number of suitable naval missiles, and the hit was accurate and direct, thanks to God.”

The statement went on to say that “The Yemeni armed forces will not hesitate to target all sources of threat in the Arab and Red Bahrain within the legitimate right to defend dear Yemen and to continue supporting the oppressed Palestinian people,” adding that “The Yemeni Armed Forces confirm that a response to the American and British attacks is inevitably coming, and that any new attack will not remain without response and punishment.”

Per usual, the Houthis added that attacks “against Israeli ships or those heading to the ports of occupied Palestine will not stop until the aggression stops and the siege imposed on the steadfast Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip is lifted.”
