REPORT: U.S. Warship, Commercial Vessels Attacked in Red Sea

( – The Pentagon reported that on Sunday, in the Red Sea, several commercial vessels and a warship of the United States Navy were attacked.

This could be the start of a new wave of maritime attacks in the Middle East that are connected to the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

According to A.P., the Pentagon stated, “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.”

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG-64) is in service. It appears to have not yet retaliated against its assailant(s).

Speaking anonymously to discuss intelligence-related things, a U.S. official stated that the strike started in Sanaa, Yemen, around 10 a.m. and continued for up to five hours.

The Houthis did not immediately respond.

Nonetheless, an A.P. story stated that a Houthi terrorist spokesman had noted that a “significant” statement would soon be available.

Three weeks ago, the USS Carney destroyed three land assault cruise missiles and many drones that the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen had launched, potentially contributing to an increase in Middle East instability that Iranian-backed players started.

When the Carney shot down the drones and cruise missiles, it was operating in the northern Red Sea, according to Pentagon Press Secretary Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder.

He described the incident as a “demonstration” of American capabilities and commitment to defend allies and interests in the area.

The Pentagon did not disclose the source of the most recent hostile fire.

The Red Sea was the site of explosions and a possible drone attack, according to the British military. It didn’t go into much detail.

Terrorists from the Houthis took control of a cargo ship with ties to Israel last month.

The terrorist organization dominates the majority of Yemen’s Red Sea coast and is an ally of Iran.

As part of a regional alliance known as the “Axis of Resistance” backed by Iran, the Houthis have rallied behind the Palestinians since Hamas attacked Israel.

Their slogan is “Death to America, Death to Israel, curse the Jews and victory to Islam.”

Even as U.S. warships are openly and aggressively attacked, the Biden administration continues to show the world how weak America has become.
