USCENTCOM Destroys Houthi Aerial and Surface Threats in Red Sea Encounter

In the past 24 hours, U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) forces have thwarted multiple threats originating from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen, maintaining security in the Red Sea region. Among the successful operations, USCENTCOM forces neutralized eight Houthi uncrewed aerial systems (UAS) and two uncrewed surface vessels (USV) that were launched from Yemeni territory.

In a coordinated effort, a coalition ship also intercepted and engaged one Houthi UAS, contributing to the protection of maritime interests in the area.

However, tensions escalated as Iranian-backed Houthis launched an anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) from Yemeni territory towards the Red Sea. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries or damages to U.S., coalition, or commercial ships, underscoring the effectiveness of the defensive measures employed.

The incident highlights the ongoing challenges posed by Houthi activities in the region, underscoring the importance of continued vigilance and cooperation among international forces to safeguard vital maritime routes.
