In the wake of a recent Houthi attack on ships in the Red Sea, a US destroyer has taken swift action by shooting down drones deployed by the assailants.

In a demonstration of military capability, a US destroyer successfully intercepted and neutralized the hostile drones deployed by the Houthi attackers. This immediate response showcases the commitment of the United States to ensuring the safety and security of maritime operations in the region.

The attack, orchestrated by Houthi rebels, targeted ships traversing the strategically significant Red Sea region. This brazen act of aggression raised concerns among international maritime communities and prompted the US to respond decisively.

According to Central Command, the USS Carney, a Navy destroyer, detected a ballistic missile fired from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen at the Bahamas-flagged bulk carrier Unity Explorer.

However, the attacks marked an escalation in a series of maritime attacks in the Mideast linked to the Israel-Hamas war as multiple vessels found themselves in the crosshairs of a single Houthi assault for the first time in the conflict.

In a statement, US Central Command said the attacks “represent a direct threat to international commerce and maritime security. They have jeopardized the lives of international crews representing multiple countries around the world.” It said the three commercial ships and their crews are connected to 14 countries.

In conclusion, the missile hit near the ship. Shortly afterward, the Carney shot down a drone headed its way, although it’s not clear if the destroyer was the target. The drone was also launched from Yemen.
