Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sari said the Norwegian tanker Strinda was on its way to Israel.

A missile hit the Norwegian ship Strinda in the Red Sea near Yemen. A fire broke out on the ship. This was reported by Reuters on Tuesday, December 12.

The attack on the tanker took place 111 kilometers north of the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which connects the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, a US official said.

The ship was able to continue moving for several hours after the attack.

“There were no US ships nearby at the time of the attack, but the destroyer USS MASON responded to Strinda’s call and was providing assistance,” US Central Command said.

The tanker Strinda flies under the Norwegian flag.

Yemen’s Houthis claim responsibility for the missile attack on the Norwegian tanker Strinda. About that stated Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sari on the X social network.

The ship, loaded with oil, was bound for Israel, Sari said.

He added that the Houthis had “managed to prevent the passage of several ships” in recent days, and said they would continue to do so against all ships bound for Israeli ports but not carrying food and medicine for Gaza Strip.

As previously reported, shipping companies have begun redirecting ships from the Middle East region amid more frequent attacks in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.
