Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi militants have staged months of attacks on shipping in the Red Sea region in support of Palestinians in the Gaza war.

On the other hand. The attack came days after the AP news agency quoted a US official as saying that Yemen’s Houthis may be moving between their supply of drones and ballistic missiles from ships, as the pace of their attacks slowsslightly slower, the top US air force commander in the Middle East said on Wednesday.
.Lt. Gen. Alexus Grynkewich, head of US Air Force Central, said the US’s continued retaliatory strikes against Iran-backed militias have “really affected their morale.” Their speed of operation is not what it used to be.”

The Houthis carry out daily attacks on commercial and military ships in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, launching aircraft and missiles from areas controlled by the Yemeni opposition. the attacks — which were often unsuccessful but sometimes hit ships — disrupted important shipping lanes.

In response, the United States and its allies have been forced to increase their presence of military vessels in the waterway, and have repeatedly carried out retaliatory attacks on ammunition, weapons and other facilities. U.S. Ships and warplanes also routinely bombard Houthi drones and missiles in the area and are preparing to launch them.

It is worth noting that the Houthi attacks on the ships in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden have greatly affected world trade

Also, The attacks have disrupted global shipping through the Suez Canal, forcing firms to re-route to longer and more expensive journeys around southern Africa.
