mode of attack

Probably with missile C-802 anti-ship, supplied to the Houthi forces.
Previously, for the first attack against HSV-2 Swift, end September 2016 Houthis said they have used a C-802 anti-Chinese ship missile system designed to conduct the attack. His long-range missiles are designed to home on surface vessels and inflict devastating damage. With a range of 120 kilometers (about 75 miles), the missiles would put a considerable stretch of the area surrounding the straits of Bab el-Mandeb connecting the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden in the line of fire. More important for the UAE, however, the missiles could reach Assab and naval base that is being built just north of the port. If such missiles were delivered the Houthis, the most likely supplier would be Iran, which purchased C-802 missiles from China and produced its own variant, the Noor.
