Washington, June 13 (QNA) - The US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced that Houthi unmanned surface vessel (USV) struck M/V Tutor vessel in the Red Sea, causing damage to the engine room.

"The impact of the USV caused severe flooding and damage to the engine room," CENTCOM said in a press release.

CENTCOM forces responded by destroying three anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM) launchers in a Houthi controlled area of Yemen and one uncrewed aerial system (UAS) launched from a Houthi controlled area of Yemen over the Red Sea.

Houthi group said in a statement that they targeted the vessel in solidarity with the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, asserting that the attack caused severe damage to the vessel. (QNA)
