Coalition accuses Houthis of attacking Saudi oil tanker

"The United States is very concerned about the Houthis' latest attempt to escalate the war in Yemen, this time by attacking a commercial vessel while it transited one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, the Bab al-Mandab, in global waters", the release said.
A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen, Turki Al-Maliki, accused Houthi rebels on Tuesday of attacking a Saudi Arabian oil tanker in the Red Sea.
Thomas Staal, counselor for the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, said the United States extended its "gratitude" to Saudi Arabia and UAE "for their significant contributions to the United Nations' coordinated response".
Col al-Malki described it as a "terrorist attack" that threatens ships entering the vital Bab al-Mandeb strait, used for oil shipments from the Gulf to Europe.
"But just as unlawful coalition air strikes don't justify the Houthis' indiscriminate attacks, the Saudis can't use Houthi rockets to justify impeding life-saving goods for Yemen's civilian population". "We call on the Houthis to cease further escalation and demonstrate their commitment to a peace process by engaging in constructive dialogue".
Medics and a civilian who saw the wreckage said the air strike had destroyed a house in the al-Hali district, where displaced civilians from other provinces were settled. Saudi authorities said they had intercepted the missiles, although debris had killed one person. Deputy Health Minister Walid al-Emmad said at least eight women and five girls were among those killed.
The attack could complicate a new United Nations attempt to end a war that has killed more than 10,000 people.
The Houthis have fired close to 100 missiles toward Saudi Arabia since the war began.

It may or may not be true that trade wars are easy to win, but they are certainly easier to start than they are to stop. De Bolle said Beijing likely believes it has greater a capacity to inflict pain on the United States than vice versa.
