A ballistic missile fired from Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen has struck a U.S.-owned and operated merchant vessel attempting to transit the Red Sea.
U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) confirmed a hit on the bulk carrier M/V Gibraltar Eagle by an anti-ship missile.
According to CENTCOM, the ship reports no injuries and remains seaworthy. It is continuing on its journey.
The strike comes less than a day after the Houthis fired a missile at a U.S. destroyer in the Red Sea.
