On June 12, local time, the Houthi armed forces released news that they attacked the "TUTOR" freighter on the Red Sea through unmanned speedboats, drones and ballistic missiles, resulting in serious damage to the ship and the danger of sinking.

On the evening of June 18, the UK Office of Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) said that the TUTOR cargo ship, which had been attacked by Houthi forces, sank 66 nautical miles southwest of Hodeida, Yemen. The office had said on the 12th that a small white boat about 5 to 7 meters long collided with the stern of the freighter. The freighter has taken on water and is "out of control". The freighter was hit by a "UFO" after being attacked by a small boat.FCL container shipping

It is understood that due to the serious damage to the "TUTOR" freighter, the crew was forced to abandon ship on the 14th. On the 18th, the British Navy found debris and oil stains in the TUTOR's last reported location, confirming that the ship had sunk off the east coast of Eritrea.customs clearance shipping

This is the second time that the Houthis have sunk a cargo ship since they announced attacks on the Red Sea and other shipping routes. Earlier, the British cargo ship "Rubimar" sank off the coast of Yemen on March 1 after being hit by a Houthi missile.

After a new round of Israeli-Palestinian conflict broke out in October last year, the Houthis used drones and missiles to repeatedly attack targets in the Red Sea waters. Since January 12 this year, the United States and the United Kingdom have repeatedly launched air strikes against Houthi targets, causing casualties.

According to AFP reported on June 20, the US military announced on the 19th that it had destroyed two facilities in the area controlled by the Houthis after a series of attacks in recent days against ships sailing in the Red Sea.

At present, the confrontation between the two sides is intensifying, tensions are rising, and the global supply chain is still under great pressure. At least 65 countries and 29 different energy and shipping companies were directly affected by the attacks.

In addition, due to the Red Sea crisis, revenue from Egypt's Suez Canal has fallen by nearly half this year. According to Egypt's AL-Mal News, figures released this week show that revenue from the Suez Canal fell 64.3 percent last month to about $337.8 million, compared with $648 million in May 2023.
