US Navy destroyer comes under missile attack off Yemen coast..payback?
A missile fired from the Yemeni shore targeted a US Navy guided missile destroyer, a Pentagon spokesman has said. Two rockets, which failed to hit the ship, allegedly came from territory controlled by Houthi rebels.
“USS Mason detected two inbound missiles over a 60-minute period while in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen. Both missiles impacted the water before reaching the ship,” Reuters quoted Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis as saying.
Duff told Reuters there were “no injuries to our sailors and no damage to the ship.” He reportedly said the failed attack originated in an area controlled by Houthi rebels, who are being targeted by airstrikes of the Saudi-led coalition. The Saudis have been supporting the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, ousted in a Houthi rebellion in November 2014.
Arab coalition intercepted two missiles fired by Yemen’s Houthi group at targets in Saudi Arabia and Yemen’s Marib province on Sunday, Saudi Arabian official media reported.
Warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition later attacked the two military bases from which the missiles were fired, the Saudi Press Agency reported late on Sunday.
A base in the capital Sanaa fired one missile towards Marib, and a base in northern Saada province launched a missile towards the Saudi city of Taif, the site of a Saudi air force base.
