“Robimar” is the first ship sunk by the Houthis

A British-registered cargo ship sank two weeks after being attacked by the Houthis in the Gulf of Aden. The Yemeni government said that the ship, Rubimar, drifted and leaked water for several days before it sank.

This is the first ship that the Houthis have sunk in Yemen since they began targeting ships in the Red Sea. The ship was loaded with fertilizers, and experts say its sinking threatens to cause an “environmental disaster.”

The ship Rubymar was in the Gulf of Aden near the Bab al-Mandab Strait, when it was hit by two missiles fired by the Houthis.

Ten days ago, the British government said that water had leaked onto the ship and all 24 crew members were rescued.
