Two Houthi missiles almost missed an Indian oil and chemical tanker, US Drone Intercepts

A tense situation occurred in the Red Sea on Wednesday when an Indian oil and chemical ship was just barely missed by two missiles fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen. The incident highlights the continuous threat that the Yemeni conflict poses to international marine transportation, particularly close to the vital Bab el-Mandeb Strait.

The crew and contents of the tanker were in grave danger when two Houthi missiles barely missed them. The oil and chemical tanker Ardmore Encounter was sailing from Mangalore, India, to the Suez Canal.

An American warship that was already in the area fired down a suspected Houthi drone that was approaching the tanker, confirming the USA’s dedication to regional security. This particular incident highlights the Houthis’ willingness to strike commercial vessels, including those connected to India, and represents a grave escalation of the current war in Yemen.
