Houthis Boast Of Fresh Attack On ‘Several’ American Warships:

A military spokesman for Yemen’s Houthis has announced the group carried out fresh attacks Tuesday, as they continue keeping up the pressure on the US-led naval coalition patrolling the Red Sea.

Significantly, the spokesman announced in the new operation attacks using kamikaze drones “targeting several American warships in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea.”

The statement further said, according to a translation, “Simultaneously, Yemen targeted sensitive IOF military locations in the Umm al-Rashrash (Eilat) south of occupied Palestine using kamikaze drones.”

“Additionally, the Yemeni naval forces targeted an Israeli ship MSC SILVER in the Gulf of Aden with anti-ship missiles,” the Houthi spokesman’s written statement said.

It’s as yet unclear whether the drones struck their intended targets. The latest Pentagon statement didn’t indicate this was the case. But a statement did confirm an attempt to strike the USS Laboon with an anti-ship cruise missile. On Tuesday US Central Command (CENTCOM) issued a list of at least five significant military actions and events from Monday into early Tuesday.
