US Navy rescue crew from a Greek-owned ship struck by Houthis in the Red Sea

The US Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT) said on Sunday it had rescued the crew of the Liberian-flagged bulk carrier M/V Tutor, which was attacked in the Red Sea on June 12 by the Iran-allied Yemeni Houthis.

Sailors assigned to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group aviation crew on Saturday, Navcent said, adding that one civilian sailor remained unaccounted for.

The attack, which took place near the Yemeni port of Hodeidah, caused severe flooding and damage to the engine room and left the Tutor unable to maneuver.

On Saturday, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) said the ship’s crew was being evacuated and the abandoned ship was floating in the Red Sea.

The Houthis claimed responsibility for the small naval vessels and missile strikes it used to target the ship as part of their ongoing campaign which they say is in support of the Palestinians and targets ships bound for Israel.
