CENTCOM says US forces ‘engaged and destroyed’ two Houthi UAS launched from Yemen

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) says it “engaged and destroyed two unmanned aerial systems in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen” earlier today.

It says the aerial systems were determined to present a threat to US and coalition forces in the area, as well as to vessels transiting in nearby waters.

“These actions are necessary to protect our forces, ensure freedom of navigation, and make international waters safer and more secure for US, coalition and merchant vessels,” the statement says.
