The Yemeni Ansar Allah movement, better known as the Houthis, attacked and sank the Ukrainian cargo ship Verbena, which violated the ban on passage to Palestinian ports. This was reported by the US Central Command. The cargo ship was attacked using several anti-ship cruise missiles.

After the impact, the Verbena vessel was seriously damaged and a fire started on board. The attack seriously injured a sailor who was evacuated to a nearby American warship for medical treatment. That evening, the Houthis announced that the cargo ship sank in the Gulf of Aden.

Ukrainian authorities have not yet made official statements regarding the loss of the Verbena vessel.
