A US warship shot down “multiple one-way attack drones” launched from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen on Thursday morning local time, according to the United States Central Command.
In a statement, CENTCOM said the USS Thomas Hudner shot the drones down while it was on patrol in the Red Sea, adding that there had been no damage to the ship or injuries sustained by the crew.
Tensions have increased in the Red Sea region since the start of the Israel-Hamas war, with Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claiming to have fired ballistic missiles and drones toward Israel.
