Yemen’s Houthi rebels claim responsibility for cruise missile strike in Israel

Yemen’s Houthis have taken responsibility for firing a cruise missile that landed in an open area of Israel, marking the first time a projectile launched by the Iran-backed group struck the Jewish nation.

The Israeli Defense Forces announced on Tuesday it tracked a “suspicious aerial target,” which it later confirmed was a cruise missile, the Times of Israel reports (https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-first-idf-confirms-houthi-cruise-missile-hit-open-area-near-eilat-on-monday/).

The missile landed in an “open area north of Eilat,” the IDF claimed.

No damage or injuries were reported.

The Israeli Defense Forces says it is now investigating the attack, according to the Times of Israel.

Houthis also targeted a fuel tanker in the Red Sea with naval missiles, spokesman Yahya Saree said in a prerecorded message on Tuesday.

The group took aim at a liquefied petroleum gas tanker that was headed to Singapore from Saudi Arabia on March 15 and March 17.

But both attacks missed the intended target, causing no damage or injuries
