Navy Combats Numerous Attacks From Rebels

Two land-based cruise missiles, three anti-ship ballistic missiles, and twelve suicide drones were intercepted by U.S. naval forces over ten hours on Tuesday as they were launched into the Red Sea by the Houthis.

The Yemeni military has been conducting patrols in the Red Sea area to protect commercial vessels from the Iranian-supported terrorist group.

According to U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), the daylong barrage of drone and missile assaults in the southern Red Sea area was repelled by the destroyer USS Laboon and fighter fighters from the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier.

After the captain of the MSC United VII disregarded the Houthis’ warnings three times, the Houthis’ military spokesman said that “suitable naval missiles” were fired at the ship on December 26. The Yemeni military has stated its moral, religious, and humanitarian obligation to stand for the Palestinian people and their cause.

In addition, the Houthis claimed responsibility for an assault on the Israeli port of Eliat as part of their efforts to induce Israel to halt its conflict with the terrorist organization Hamas.

About 55 nautical miles southwest of the Yemeni port of Hodeidah, the UK Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) organization reported an incident in the Red Sea. The Danish shipping corporation Maersk subsequently confirmed that all crew members were unharmed and that the Maersk Hangzhou was completely maneuverable as it continued its northbound route to Port Suez without any signs of fire. It would also cause a 48-hour delay for transits passing through the region.

Israeli boats and vessels related to Israel are targets, according to the Yemeni rebels.

In light of the recent events, many maritime companies have decided to shorten their routes around Africa rather than continue via the Red Sea.

No missile or drone attack has occurred on any of the 1,200 commerce ships that have transited the Red Sea area since the Pentagon declared Operation Prosperity Guardian.
