US official says Houthi claim of attacking US aircraft carrier in Red Sea is ‘incorrect’

A claim by Yemen’s Houthi group on Saturday that its forces had attacked the US aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Red Sea is false, two US officials tell Reuters.

“That is incorrect,” one of the officials says, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The Iran-backed Houthis claimed earlier that the operation against the Eisenhower had achieved its objectives successfully, without elaborating.

A report prior to that said that the Eisenhower had been ordered home, after months of leading US operations against the Houthi attacks.
