Yemen’s Houthis fired two missiles toward Bab Al-Mandeb Strait targeting a greek-owned cargo vessel “MV Star Iris” transiting the Red Sea carrying corn from Brazil with its final destination being Bandar Imam Khomeini, Iran - the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) has announced.

The Marshall Islands-flagged vessel remains seaworthy and sustained minor damage with no injuries reported among its crew, the statement added.
