A Bangladeshi is among the crew members of a commercial ship that was attacked by the Houthis in the Gulf of Aden. This was mentioned in the statement given by the Indian Navy today on Saturday.

According to the Indian Navy, the commercial vessel was hit by a missile. A guided missile destroyer of the Indian Navy proceeded to assist the ship after receiving a distress call. A total of 22 crew members were on board the ship that was attacked. Among them 22 Indians and one Bangladeshi.

The Indian Navy says the merchant ship that was attacked is the Marlin Luanda. It caught fire after the missile attack. Indian warship INS Visakhapatnam proceeded to help Marlin Luanda after receiving an urgent message.

The Houthis are a rebel group in Yemen. Houthis control vast areas of the country. Since last November, they have been carrying out a series of attacks targeting commercial ships that have ties to Israel in the Red Sea in protest of Israel’s indiscriminate attacks on Gaza.

The Red Sea is one of the most important waterways of world trade. The Houthi attack has reduced shipping on this route. It has an impact on world trade. In this situation, the United States and the United Kingdom have recently launched multiple attacks targeting Houthi positions in Yemen. They banned the Houthis again.

Since the beginning of the attacks of the two countries, the Houthis have been targeting commercial ships that are associated with the United States and the United Kingdom in addition to Israel in the Red Sea as well as the Gulf of Aden. Earlier on January 18, they attacked a ship in the Gulf of Aden with a drone. news here: prothomalo
