Separately, the US warship Laboon on Saturday shot down four attack drones “coming from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen”, the Pentagon’s Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a post on Twitter. No injuries or damage were reported.

It said an attack drone also came close to a Norwegian-flagged tanker, MV Blamenen, while another tanker, the Indian-flagged MV Saibaba, “was hit by a one-sided attack drone, with no injuries reported.” Not there.”

Meanwhile, CENTCOM said Houthi rebels fired two antiship ballistic missiles into the Red Sea shipping lanes on Saturday, “with no reports of any ships being affected.”

“These attacks represent the 14th and 15th attacks on commercial shipping by Houthi militants since October 17,” Centcom said.

Red Sea attacks on shipping since the beginning of the Israel–Hamas war have prompted major companies to reroute their cargo ships around the southern tip of Africa, despite higher fuel costs for longer voyages.

On Saturday, an official in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard warned that unless Israel ended its war with Hamas, other waterways would be forcibly closed.

“As these crimes continue, the US and its allies should expect the emergence of new resistance forces and the closure of other waterways,” Mohammad Reza Naqdi was quoted by Iran’s Tasnim news agency as saying.

The waterways he mentioned included the Mediterranean Sea. He did not elaborate.
