The Ansar Allah Houthi group aired footage documenting the moment a drone targeted the “Cyclades” cargo ship in the Red Sea, while US and British warplanes bombed the coastal governorate of Hodeidah in western Yemen.

Ansar Allah's military spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saari, announced after midnight last night that they targeted the ship because it violated the group's decision to ban ships from entering Israeli ports and used camouflage and deception.

Sari added that the group's drone force targeted the Israeli ship “MSC” in the Indian Ocean with several drones.

The command did not report any casualties among allied forces or damage to merchant ships.
