US says Houthi missiles fired at Greek ship, UAV shot down in Red Sea

The US military confirms that Yemen’s Houthi rebels fired three ballistic missiles at a merchant vessel in the Red Sea and at least one drone at American warships patrolling the crucial waterway yesterday.

Central Command says in a tweet that the Greek-owned MV Cyclades, flying a Malta flag, was able to continue on its way after being targeted by the three anti-ship ballistic missiles.

Marine tracking data shows the bulk carrier was headed from Saleef, Yemen toward the Suez Canal.

CentCom also says it “successfully engaged and destroyed” a Houthi UAV headed toward the USS Philippine Sea and USS Laboon in the Red Sea.

No injuries or damage are reported in either incident.
