Houthis attack two US warships in Red Sea with naval missiles and drones

YEMEN : Yemen‘s Iran-aligned Houthis carried out a military operation in which they targeted two US warship destroyers in the Red Sea, the group’s military spokesman, Yahya Sarea, said in a televised speech on Tuesday. He said the ships were targeted by a number of naval missiles and drones.

Houthis’ Red Sea attacks have disrupted global shipping, forcing firms to re-route to longer and more expensive journeys around southern Africa, and stoked fears that the Israel-Hamas war could spread to destabilise the wider Middle East.

Houthi militants have repeatedly launched drones and missiles against international commercial shipping since mid-November, saying they are acting in solidarity with Palestinians against Israel’s military actions in Gaza.
