  • Bahri VL attacked off Yemen by Houthis

    Not sure if you saw but a laden Bahri VLCC was attacked by Houthis in the Bab-el-Mandab straits a few days ago. They were having a pop at some of the gas carriers running through there with RPGs but evidently decided to target a crude carrier instead.

    Must have been scary for the crew. Apparently a naval vessel engaged the rebel skiff(s) and they withdrew causing only minor damage to the tanker. She proceeded north to the transfer pipeline in Egypt under her own power.

    Pretty lucky I'd say. Great job by all involved to come out of it safely with no loss of life or containment.
