        2024 年 3 月 4 日,世界上最大的航运公司——总部位于瑞士的地中海航运公司(MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company)所属的一艘集装箱船在红海被一枚导弹击中。

        据美国中央司令部(CENTCOM)通报,周一下午,也门胡塞组织从也门向亚丁湾发射了两枚反舰弹道导弹,击中了MSC Sky II号货轮。

        这艘悬挂利比里亚国旗的 2,169 TEU 集装箱船当时正从新加坡驶往吉布提。

        VesselsValue 提供的数据显示,事件发生在亚丁东南约 91 海里处。

        其中一枚导弹击中该船,导致起火和轻微损坏。初步报告显示,没有人员伤亡,船只继续前行。

        印度海军团队对事件做出了反应,来自 INS Kolkata 的专业消防队协助了灭火工作。载有 23 名船员的 MSC 箱船已被护送至安全水域。

        就在这起事故发生的两天前,英国拥有的 32,200 载重吨散货船 Rubymar 号在红海沉没。2024 年 2 月 18 日,该船在通过也门 Al Mokha 以南约 35 海里的曼德海峡时遭到胡塞叛军的袭击。

        自 2023 年底以来,胡塞组织增加了对国际商船的导弹和无人机袭击,这些袭击被称为声援巴勒斯坦人的行动。他们要求达成一项协议,保证加沙地带的停火以及不间断地向该地区提供人道主义援助。

        值得提醒的是,2023 年 12 月 26 日,另一艘 MSC 集装箱船 MSC United 在通过红海时遭到袭击。事发时,这艘集装箱船正从沙特阿拉伯阿卜杜拉国王港驶往巴基斯坦卡拉奇。

MSC ship hit by missile in Red Sea

A containership owned by Switzerland-based MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, the world’s biggest shipping company, was hit by a missile in the Red Sea on March 4, 2024.

On Monday afternoon, Yemen’s Houthi group fired two anti-ship ballistic missiles from Yemen into the Gulf of Aden at M/V MSC Sky II, the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) informed.

The Liberia-flagged 2,169 TEU containership was en route from Singapore to Djibouti.

The incident occurred some 91 nautical miles southeast of Aden, data provided by VesselsValue shows.

One of the missiles impacted the vessel causing a fire and minor damage. Initial reports indicate there were no injuries and the ship continued on its way.

The Indian Navy team responded to the incident, with a specialized firefighting team from INS Kolkata assisting in firefighting efforts. The MSC boxship, with a crew of 23 personnel has been escorted to safe waters.

The latest incident came only two days after the 32,200 dwt UK-owned bulker Rubymar sank in the Red Sea. The ship was attacked by Houthi rebels while transiting the Strait of Bab el-Mandeb, about 35 NM south of Al Mokha, Yemen, on February 18, 2024.

The Houthi group has increased missile and drone attacks on international commercial ships since late 2023, which were described as acts of solidarity with Palestinians. They demand a deal that would guarantee a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip as well as an uninterrupted delivery of humanitarian aid to the area.

To remind, another MSC containership, MSC United, was attacked while transiting the Red Sea on December 26, 2023. At the time of the incident, the boxship was en route from King Abdullah Port, Saudi Arabia, to Karachi, Pakistan.
