Houthi Militants Attack US Container Ship With Ballistic Missiles Days After Biden Attack On Yemen

• Zero Hedge

So much for the billions in taxpayer funds spent on Operation "Prosperity Guardian", the Biden admin's brilliant plan to "protect" shipping through the Red Sea against Houthi attacks.

On Monday, Houthi militants struck another US-owned container ship with an anti-ship ballistic missile, underscoring how catastrophic Biden's attempt to protect one of the world's busiest shipping lanes has been, and that the world's most important trade artery remains too risky for navigation despite explicit US guarantees for safe passage.

The Gibraltar Eagle, a Marshall Islands-flagged, U.S.-owned and operated container ship, was struck at about 4 p.m. local time in the Gulf of Aden, US Central Command said on X. Nobody was injured, the vessel avoided significant damage and was able continue its journey, it said.
