US attacks ten drones in western Yemen
The United States has attacked 10 drones in western Yemen that the Houthis were about to launch, CBS News reports. The channel bases this on information from a senior American defense official in Bahrain.
“A senior defense official in Bahrain just told us that 10 minutes ago, F-18 fighter jets bombed 10 unmanned drones in western Yemen that were preparing to launch,” wrote Norah O’Donnell, editor-in-chief of CBS Evening News, on X.
Earlier Wednesday, the US military said it had destroyed a Houthi missile that was poised to be fired from Yemen and posed a potential threat to US aircraft.
The Houthis have been carrying out attacks on ships in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas. Initially, only vessels with an Israeli link were affected. US and British ships are also targets as the US and UK have attacked Houthi targets.
