The Iran-backed Houthis are continuing their attacks in the Red Sea. Yesterday, they targeted two American-flagged ships carrying cargo for the U.S. Defense and State departments.

Officials say the U.S. Navy was forced to intercept ballistic missiles fired at the two ships, neither of which sustained damage. An official Navy Statement confirms that “three anti-ship ballistic missiles” were fired with one landing in the sea and the other two being shot down.

It’s the latest Houthi attack since November and comes a day after the U.S. destroyed two anti-ship missiles in Yemen aimed at the Red Sea. Despite the military response from the U.S., the Houthis are vowing to continue their attacks.
