Multiple Commercial Vessels and US Warship Attacked in Red Sea, Pentagon Reports

The Pentagon confirmed on Sunday that a US warship was attacked. “We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available, later,” stated a Pentagon spokesperson. The USS Carney shot down several drones and missiles, according to U.S. Central Command in a previous statement. Authorities claimed that the USS Carney was under attack for five hours. A Yemeni Houthi spokesman said via a state-run news outlet that a vessel was hit by a missile and the second by a drone while in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait that links the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden. UK military sources also reported a suspected drone attack and explosions in the Red Sea. Additionally, a brigadier general for the Houthi group, which is backed by Iran, launched “painful strikes” toward “the occupying entity with ballistic and winged missiles and drones, and preventing the Israeli enemy’s ships and those cooperating with it from passing through the Red Sea and Bab al-Mandab until it stops its aggression against Gaza strip.” They stated that the Yemeni armed forces will continue to prevent Israeli ships from navigating the Red Sea (and Gulf of Aden) until the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip stops. The official, however, did not elaborate on the attack, including whether the target was an American warship. The Houthis had not directly targeted the Americans for some time, further raising the stakes in the growing maritime conflict. Since the start of the Israel conflict, U.S. forces have come under attack in the Middle East as several Iran-aligned groups have fired rockets at military bases housing troops. The collapse of the truce and the resumption of punishing Israeli airstrikes and its ground offensive had raised the risk of seaborne attacks resuming.
