US destroyer shoots down drones as attacks from Yemen hit Red Sea shipping

An American destroyer shot down multiple drones today while assisting commercial ships in the Red Sea that were targeted by attacks “from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen,” the US Central Command (CENTCOM) says.

“Today, there were four attacks against three separate commercial vessels operating in international waters in the southern Red Sea,” CENTCOM says in a statement.

The three vessels “are connected to 14 separate nations.”

“The Arleigh-Burke Class destroyer USS CARNEY responded to the distress calls from the ships and provided assistance,” and shot down three drones that were heading for the warship during the day, the statement says.
