Yemeni Houthi forces attacked a US Navy destroyer and two civilian vessels in the Red Sea, causing significant disruption to global maritime trade. The attacks have led to the closure of the southern port of Eilat and a rise in insurance premiums for Red Sea transits. The US Navy has spent $1 billion in munitions to counter the Houthi aggression.
