U.S. Says Recent Strikes On Yemen Destroyed Two Suicide Boats, Three Anti-Ship Missiles

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) said on February 11 that its forces destroyed two unmanned surface vessels (USV) and three mobile anti-ship cruise missiles of the Houthis (Ansar Allah) in Yemen in “self-defense strikes” a day earlier.

In a statement, the command said its forces identified the USVs and missiles in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen and determined they presented an imminent threat to U.S. Navy ships and merchant vessels in the region.

“These actions will protect freedom of navigation and make international waters safer and more secure for U.S. Navy and merchant vessels,” CENTCOM added.

Yemen’s Al-Masirah TV, which is run by the Houthis, said that three “American-British” strikes hit the town of al-Salif in the western province of al-Hudaydah on February 10.

On the same day, the Saba news agency, which is also linked to the Houthis, announced the death of 17 fighters of the group in recent “American-British” strikes.

The Houthis have targeted dozens of Israel-affiliated vessels and others owned by the U.S. and the United Kingdom in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden since November 19 in response to the ongoing Israeli war and siege on the Gaza Strip, which has so far claimed the lives of more than 28,000 Palestinains.

The U.S. and the UK retaliated to the attacks by carrying out dozens of strikes on Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen in recent weeks.

Despite recent strikes, the Houthis are still determined to go on with their military campaign and shipping to Israel via the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden remain mostly on halt.

it isn’t that hard to make a program the boat can submerge with a final course-engage command if signals are hard to transmit underwater, and have it turn into a torpedo as it gets within machine gun range of ships. then it can detonate primarily underwater, under the ships water line. you could easily fit such a program on something like a raspberry-pi level of chip.

you just made me think of unintended consequences. once this war in ukraine is over there’s going to be lots of nato trained ukrainians experts in drone warfare and innovative sea warfare looking to freelance for the highest bidder.

the houthis could be making torpedos out of nested pvc piping with good caulk. homegrown drones are being made with 3d printers and simple chips. hell, people are now building their own pcbs on the cheap as a hobby. without the motivation supplied by child raping mass murdering psychopaths, people have no reason to be designing weapons all the time and building them in their backyard. the ‘elite’ morons are catalyzing their own premature demise with their demented policies.

the way people in the entire world are crowd funding and people in ukraine are hand assembling drones this looks like pandoras box beeing opened.

why is the usa bombing a poor country half way around the world in self defense and as usual protecting american freedom by bombing those trying to end an atrocity. perhaps the usa is up to something else.
