USS Carney Defends in Red Sea


In a recent incident in the Red Sea, a U.S. destroyer successfully intercepted drones and a missile launched by Yemen’s Houthi rebels aimed at the USS Carney. This Arleigh Burke-class destroyer has been actively involved in the American campaign against the rebel group, particularly following attacks related to Israel’s conflict with Hamas in Gaza.

Swift Response Against Houthi Assault

The Houthi attack employed bomb-carrying drones and an anti-ship ballistic missile, posing a threat to the USS Carney. The U.S. military’s Central Command swiftly countered with an airstrike, neutralizing three anti-ship missiles and three bomb-carrying drone boats launched by the rebels.

Houthi Claims and Continued Resistance

Despite the U.S. retaliation, Brig. Gen. Yahya Saree, a spokesperson for the Houthi military, affirmed the attack while suggesting they targeted two American warships. The Houthis remain resolute in their resistance, vowing to persist until perceived aggression ceases and the blockade on Gaza is lifted.

The extent of damage inflicted on Houthi forces by the U.S.-led airstrikes remains undisclosed, with the rebels confirming casualties among their ranks but refraining from providing detailed assessments.

Rebels Targeting Ships in Red Sea and Surrounding Waters

Since November, the rebels have repeatedly targeted ships in the Red Sea and surrounding waters over the Israel-Hamas war. Among the vessels attacked was at least one carrying cargo bound for Iran, the Houthis’ main benefactor, as well as an aid ship later destined for Houthi-controlled territory.

Ongoing Attacks Despite U.S.-Led Airstrikes

Despite more than a month and a half of U.S.-led airstrikes, the Houthi rebels have continued to launch significant attacks. Recent incidents include the sinking of a cargo ship, the Rubymar, which carried fertilizer, and the downing of an American drone valued at tens of millions of dollars.

Indian Navy’s Brave Response

The Indian navy recently released footage showing sailors from the INS Kolkata battling a fire aboard the MSC Sky II in the Gulf of Aden. The ship had been targeted by the Houthis, resulting in smoke billowing out of a container and scorch marks from a Houthi missile impact.

Missle Strike on MSC Sky II

The Mediterranean Shipping Co., based in Switzerland, reported that a missile struck the MSC Sky II while it was en route from Singapore to Djibouti. Fortunately, the missile caused only a small fire that was quickly extinguished, with no injuries to the crew.
