The Houthi militia, who control the most populous parts of Yemen, have fired exploding drones and missiles at ships with commercial ties to the US, Britain and Israel, prompting retaliatory Western strikes on Houthi military sites.

The Houthis have vowed to continue targeting ships linked to Israel in solidarity with Palestinians until Israeli forces stop their war in Gaza.

Turmoil from the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militia group Hamas has rippled around the Middle East.

Apart from the Houthi attacks on vital shipping lanes, Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah group has traded fire with Israel along the Israel-Lebanon border, and Iraqi militia groups have attacked bases that host US forces.

The major Copenhagen-based shipping company Maersk has warned of disruptions to container shipping via the Red Sea dragging into the second half of the year and of heavy congestion and delays for US-bound goods.
