The Emirates News Agency has just released pictures showing damage to the HSV Swift after it was destroyed by an anti-ship missile on Saturday.
The ship is owned by UAE Marine Dredging Company but was chartered by the United Arab Emirates military when the attack occurred.
Tiens, tiens, cette précision : chartered by the UAE military, mais quand même
The HSV Swift was on a humanitarian mission in the Red Sea when it was targeted by Yemen’s Houthi group in a missile attack near the Bab al-Mandab strait off Yemen, a key chokepoint for ships transiting between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, and Indian Ocean via the Suez Canal.
