Two Distress Calls: UK Navy Reports Crew Abandoned Ship In Gulf Of Aden, Kamikaze Drone Attack In Red Sea

Two Distress Calls: UK Navy Reports Crew Abandoned Ship In Gulf Of Aden, Kamikaze Drone Attack In Red Sea Update (1125ET): The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) reported two maritime incidents involving merchant vessels on Sunday. The first occurred in the Red Sea, where a suicide drone struck a vessel. The second incident took place in the Gulf of Aden. A new update from UKMTO said a merchant ship 96 nautical miles southeast of Nishtun, Yemen, “reported severe flooding that cannot be contained, forcing the master and crew to abandon the ship.” UKMTO said the crew had been rescued by an “assisting ship,” and the abandoned ship “remains adrift at position 14°31’N 053°08’E.”  “Relevant authorities have been informed, confirming this as a SOLAS incident,” UKMTO noted.  The term “SOLAS incident” typically refers to an event or situation that falls under the regulations and guidelines set forth by the SOLAS, which stands for the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea. SOLAS is a maritime treaty established by the International Maritime Organization. Its main purpose is to specify minimum safety standards for the construction, equipment, and operation of ships to ensure the safety of the crew and passengers. *   *   *  Iranian-backed Houthi attacks in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden continue ramping up, with two more incident reports in under 12 hours (as of 0800 ET) on Sunday morning. In oil markets, traders ignore broader conflict risks in the Middle East as the Gaza war may soon spill over into Lebanon. If further escalation is realized, then expect increased drone and missile attacks on commercial vessels sailing through critical maritime chokepoints in the Middle East, where trillions of dollars in global trade flows each year.   Let’s begin with the first incident reported by the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) on X. Just after midnight, they detailed in a report that an “uncrewed aerial

Russia targets Ukrainian power system overnight in new barrage

Russia destroyed and damaged Ukrainian energy facilities overnight as President Vladimir Putin’s forces continue attacks to disrupt the country’s power system. Russia targeted the central Dnipropetrovsk and Vinnytsia regions, as well as the Kyiv region and part of the Donetsk region in the east, the Energy Ministry said in a post on Telegram on Thursday morning. The ministry didn’t specify what infrastructure was hit. DTEK, the country’s largest power producer, said three workers were wounded in the barrage, which did serious damage to one of its thermal power plants. This was the seventh attack against the company’s power plants over the past thee months, DTEK said on Telegram. The destruction occurred even as Ukraine downed all 27 explosive-laden Shahed drones and five out of nine missiles launched by Russia overnight, Air Force commander Mykola Oleshchuk reported. Ukraine’s air defense failed to intercept ballistic Iskander-M missiles fired from Russia’s Voronezh region, underscoring its vulnerability to these types of weapons as advanced air defense systems donated by Kyiv’s western allies are too few to cover all of the country’s territory. Russia’s relentless bombing of Ukraine’s power system this year has caused rolling blackouts and left the authorities racing against time to fix the infrastructure before the winter when demand for electricity is the highest. President Putin so far showed no intention to engage with the Ukrainian peace plan, signing a treaty on military aid with North Korea and touring Vietnam in a snub to U.S. criticism. Russia said the Ukrainian military also launched drone attacks overnight against its territory. The defense ministry in Moscow reported downing nine drones over the southern Adygeya and Krasnodar regions. A woman died when a drone fell on a house in Slavyansk-na-Kubani, a town in Krasnodar region, the local governor said on Telegram. Single drones were downed
