Houthis publish image of attack on Israeli owned ship

Hazem al-Asad, a member of the Houthis’ political bureau, posted an image of an Israeli-owned ship alight on Saturday.

The ship, owned by an Israeli billionaire,  was targeted by a triangle-shaped, bomb-carrying Shahed-136 drone while in international waters in the Indian Ocean. 

A US Defence official said earlier today that it was attacked by an Iranian drone on Friday. 

According to the official, the drone exploded, causing damage to the ship but not wounding any of its crew, who added that they are monitoring the situation.
