YEMENI rebels have attacked a Saudi oil tanker in the Red Sea, putting the Middle East on red alert.

Yemen’s Houthis rebels said they had targeted a warship in the Red Sea. However other sources say an oil tanker was hit.

Early reports indicate the ship suffered a slight hit but was able to continue on its journey through the Red Sea.

Saudi coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki said Yemen rebels had launched a “terrorist attack” on one of the oil tankers.

The attack, in international waters west of the port of Hodeidah, was stopped when a warship arrived at the scene.

He said the oil tanker had suffered minor damage.

The Iran-aligned Houthi rebels said they carried out the attack in retaliation for an air strike in Yemen’s Hodeidah province.

Due to the contradicting reports it appears the rebels may have believed they attacked a warship when in fact they had bombed an oil tanker.
