And you probably thought the Yemen posts were done. Wrong! There just wasn’t much to report for a while.
Yesterday a group of Houthis launched a suicide attack on a Saudi naval vessel in the Red Sea, a short distance north of the Bab al-Mandeb, killing at least two sailors. Early reports indicate three suicide boats attacked the Saudi frigate and at least one caused damage and casualties. Things seem to have been quiet on the maritime front since October, but it’s picking up again. Stand by for more developments in February.
Remember, what goes on near this particular strait, even if it only concerns the locals, will end up touching us eventually. So take note.
