For the first time, shocking new images have surfaced on social media, revealing the extensive damage to the previously owned US bulk carrier “True Confidence.” This vessel was engulfed in flames following a missile attack by Iranian-backed Houthis earlier this year.

On March 6, Houthis fired an anti-ship ballistic missile that hit the vessel. The US military’s Central Command (Centcom) confirmed the attack, releasing two images of the heavily damaged bulker.
