Bab al-Mandab, Yemen
12 June 2024

 CENTCOM announced that its “forces successfully destroyed three anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM) launchers in a Houthi-controlled area of Yemen and one uncrewed aerial system (UAS) launched… over the Red Sea”. The Houthis also fired “two anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBM)... over the Red Sea”, causing no damage. The same day, one “Houthi unmanned surface vessel (USV) struck M/V Tutor, a Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned and operated vessel, in the Red Sea. M/V Tutor most recently docked in Russia. The impact of the USV caused severe flooding and damage to the engine room”. On 14 June, CENTCOM reported that “one civilian mariner remains missing following the attack. The crew abandoned ship and were rescued by USS Philippine Sea and partner forces. M/V Tutor remains in the Red Sea and is slowly taking on water”.
