“The United States has claimed that a cargo ship hit by missiles fired by Houthi fighters in Yemen was headed to Iran. US Central Command (CENTCOM) said early on Tuesday that the MV Star Iris was transiting through the Red Sea to reach the port city of Bandar Imam Khomeini in southern Iran. … The Iran-linked Houthis had identified the vessel as US-linked on Monday and confirmed hitting it while it travelled in waters off Yemen.” (02/12/24)
