U.S. Army Intercepts Another Houthi Ballistic Missile Over Red Sea

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) announced on April 12 that its forces intercepted an anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) that was launched by the Houthis (Ansar Allah) from Yemen a day earlier.

The missile was intercepted over the Red Sea, the command said in a statement, adding that there were no injuries or damage reported by U.S., coalition, or commercial ships.

“It was determined the ASBM presented an imminent threat to U.S., coalition, and merchant vessels in the region. These actions are taken to protect freedom of navigation and make international waters safer and more secure for U.S., coalition, and merchant vessels,” the statement reads.

The Houthis, who are backed by Iran, have attacked dozens of vessels affiliated with Israel or owned by the U.S. and the United Kingdom in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden since last November in response to the Israeli war and siege on the Gaza Strip.

On April 10 alone, the group targeted four vessels, including a U.S. warship, with drones and naval missiles in the Gulf of Aden.

Since January, the U.S. and the UK have carried out hundreds of strikes against Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen in an attempt to deter the group. Despite taking some casualties, the group expanded its operations to include the Indian Ocean.
