Houthis launch more missiles into Red Sea


Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen have launched two anti-ship ballistic missiles into the Red Sea in the past 24 hours, U.S. Central Command confirmed Tuesday, hours after Greece said attacks declined over the past week.Central Command said ASBM’s were launched from Houthi-controlled Yemen, though there were no injuries or damage reported by U.S., coalition or commercial ships. “This continued malign and reckless behavior by the Iranian-backed Houthis threatens regional stability and endangers the lives of mariners across the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden,” Central Command said in a statement.  Earlier Tuesday, Greek Shipping Minister Christos Stylianides credited closer international cooperation between naval missions in the Red Sea with having reduced the number of attacks by the Houthis. IDF CONFIRMS DEATHS OF 4 ISRAELI HOSTAGES IN HAMAS CAPTIVITY Houthi supporters march marking the anniversary of Yemeni unity in Sanaa, Yemen, Wednesday, May 22, 2024.  (AP Photo/Osamah Abdulrahman)”For us, it is a satisfaction that during the past week we see a notable reduction in the number and intensity of attacks,” Stylianides told Reuters. “It is another proof that the international community with decisiveness can stop this.” IRAN’S MILITARY SUPPLY LINE TO HOUTHI TERRORISTS EXPOSED BY DISSIDENT GROUP The USS Mason destroyer ship patrols near the USS Dwight D.
