America responded to Houthi attack

After a few days of relative calm, Houthi rebels again attacked a United States ship last Wednesday. As he said in a statement, an offensive attack against the USS Greeley based on “self-defense” against bombardment from both the North American country and the United Kingdom. The attack has already been responded to by the Pentagon, with one ballistic missile launched from territory in Yemen controlled by the said group and three Iranian drones shot down.

United States Central Command (CENTCOM) reported that the destroyer USS Carney shot down an anti-ship ballistic missile at approximately 8:30 p.m. (local time) and later, without report, did the same with three Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles. Just did it. Causing any other damage or casualty.

And a few hours earlier, US officials shot down a surface-to-air missile that was ready for launch. As he expressed through a statement on social networks, this missile “presents an imminent threat to American aircraft.” Earlier, Houthi military operations spokesman Yahya Saari confirmed that they had attacked “with several missiles” an American ship that was “heading towards ports in occupied Palestine.”

Also this morning, the United States launched a “self-defense attack” against a Houthi drone control station. A dozen aircraft of this type were shot down in the operation. U.S. forces “identified unmanned aerial vehicles carrying out unilateral attacks on control stations and unmanned aerial vehicles in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen and determined that they pose an imminent threat to naval and merchant vessels in the area.”

America’s attack on Hodeida

At this crossroads of attacks, a Houthi interior ministry spokesman condemned “British-American aggression” in Al Jabana, Hodeida city. Nasser al-Din Amer, vice chairman of the rebel group’s media authority, warned that both countries would “pay” for their attacks.

And, rather than halting its attacks, it confirms the militias’ intention to continue their attacks against any vessels belonging to Israel, the United States, and the United Kingdom in the waters of the Red Sea. Following the onset of these attacks, some major shipping companies have suspended their operations.
