The Yemen-based Houthi rebels from the Ansar Allah movement attempted to attack a US chemical and oil product tanker in the Gulf of Aden twice in one day, APA reports.

"On Feb. 24 at 11:45 p.m. (Sanaa time) (same time as Moscow’s - TASS), the Iranian-backed Houthis launched one anti-ship ballistic missile likely targeting the M/V Torm Thor, a US-flagged, owned, and operated chemical/oil product tanker in the Gulf of Aden. The missile impacted the water causing no damage or injuries," the US Defense Department’s Central Command (CENTCOM) said on the X social network on Sunday.
