The Houthis from Yemen's rebel Ansar Allah movement have delivered a missile strike on the US Genco Picardy ship in the Gulf of Aden, the movement’s military spokesperson Yahya Sarea said, APA reports citing TASS.

"The Yemeni naval forces conducted an operation, during which the US Genco Picardy ship was attacked with several anti-ship missiles in the Gulf of Aden," he told the Houthi-controlled Al Masirah television channels.

According to the spokesman, the attack was staged in response to the US and UK strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen. "The Yemeni armed forces will not hesitate to deliver strikes on all sources of threat in the Arabian and Red Seas as part of their legal right to defend our country and continue supporting the oppressed Palestinian people," Sarea warned.
