US military says it destroyed Houthi drone boats, anti-ship cruise missiles

WASHINGTON — The US military says it has destroyed three unmanned surface vessels and two anti-ship cruise missiles that were prepared to launch towards the Red Sea from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen.

The US military’s Central Command also says on X, formerly known as Twitter, that it destroyed a aerial drone that was over the Red Sea. All the weapons “presented an imminent threat to merchant vessels and to the US Navy ships in the region,” it says.
