• French Navy downs two drones over Red Sea as Houthis take aim at ‘Israeli’ ships

    Multiple drone attacks originating in Yemen detected overnight; U.S. military MQ-9 drone shot down near Yemen

    The French Navy has shot down two drones over the Red Sea where Yemen’s Houthi rebels have been attacking ships, the defense ministry in Paris said Tuesday.

    The Navy, which has two frigates deployed in the area, detected “multiple drone attacks originating in Yemen” overnight Monday to Tuesday, before destroying two of the unmanned aircraft, the ministry said.

    The attack came a day after the European Union formally launched a naval mission to protect Red Sea shipping from the Iran-backed Houthis, who control much of war-torn Yemen.

  • CENTCOM intercepts Iranian weapons shipment intended for Houthis

    A U.S. Coast Guard cutter, forward deployed to the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) area of responsibility, seized advanced conventional weapons and other lethal aid originating in Iran and bound to Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen from a vessel in the Arabian Sea on Jan. 28.

    The U.S. Coast Guard Sentinel-class fast-response cutter USCGC Clarence Sutphin Jr (WPC 1147), assigned to U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, located the vessel and boarded it in the Arabian Sea. The boarding team discovered over 200 packages that contained medium-range ballistic missile components, explosives, unmanned underwater/surface vehicle (UUV/USV) components, military-grade communication and network equipment, anti-tank guided missile launcher assemblies, and other military components.

    The direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of such aid violates U.N. Security Council Resolution 2216 (as extended and renewed by resolutions 2675 and 2707). “This is yet another example of Iran’s malign activity in the region, ” said Gen. Michael Erik Kurilla, CENTCOM commander. “Their continued supply of advanced conventional weapons to the Houthis is in direct violation of international law and continues to undermine the safety of international shipping and the free flow of commerce.”

  • Yemen’s #Houthis attack US ship in Red Sea

    Yemen’s Houthi rebels have attacked the Star Iris commercial vessel which the attackers have identified as belonging to the United States, Yahya Saria, spokesman for the rebel movement Ansar Allah, said.

    "#Yemen’s naval forces targeted the US ship Star Iris in the Red Sea with anti-ship missiles," Saria told Al Masirah television as he described the strikes as direct and accurate.

    Earlier, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) reported that an unidentified merchant vessel came under attack 40 nautical miles south of the Yemeni port of Al-Mukha. According to UKMTO, two missiles were fired at the ship, but the crew was not injured.

    The Star Iris bulk carrier sailing under the flag of Marshall Islands departed from the Brazilian port of Vila do Conde for Iran’s Bandar Imam Khomeini exactly on this date a month ago, Marine Traffic said. The crew last reported their location from the central Red Sea earlier on Monday.

  • Houthis threaten U.S. with 'new Vietnam' in event of ground attack on Yemen

    If the U.S. launches a ground operation in Yemen, it may encounter a more difficult situation than during the protracted conflicts in Afghanistan and Vietnam, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a high-ranking representative of the Yemen-based rebel Houthi movement Ansar Allah, said in an interview with Italy’s La Repubblica newspaper.

    "A ground war is what the people of Yemen wish for because they can finally fight those responsible for their suffering over the course of nine years. If the US sends troops to Yemen, it will encounter a situation more difficult than in Afghanistan and Vietnam. We are ready for various options of strategically defeating the Americans in the region," he said.

    The Houthi official added that there is no direct communication with the Americans despite the fact that the US side attempted to interact, explaining that all interaction is being handled by a team of mediators in Oman.

    Al-Houthi gave assurances that the Houthi movement does not intend to block the Red Sea and Bab el-Mandeb Strait. "Vessels unrelated to Israel won’t be harmed," he noted. He also cautioned Italy that it may become a target if it participates in aggression against Yemen. "We advise Italy to stay neutral; this is the least it can do," he added.

  • New Attacks by the Coalition and the Houthis in the Red Sea Region

    Following the attempted attack on the American destroyer Gravely, Yemen's Houthis from the Ansarallah movement launched new attacks on civilian ships heading towards the Suez Canal.

    ▪️ The Liberian- flagged container ship KOI (COLE), which was en route to the Israeli port of Eilat, was attacked with an anti-ship missile. The ship was chartered by the British firm Oceanix Services, the same company that previously chartered the supertanker Marlin Luanda, which the Houthis hit on January 26.

    ▪️ Another attack occurred approximately 57 nautical miles from Al-Hodeidah: according to the UK Department of Maritime Trade Operations, an explosion took place some distance off the starboard side of an unidentified ship. Fortunately, the crew was not injured.

    🔻 Last night, US Air Force F/A-18 carrier-based fighters attacked the group's targets in the vicinity of the city of Al - Hodeidah. Local media reported a series of powerful explosions in the area. Later, the US Central Command confirmed that they had successfully targeted the drone control station.

  • U.S. Navy warship shoots down Iranian drones, Houthi missiles, over Gulf of Ade

    The USS Carney shot down three Iranian drones and one anti-ship ballistic missile Wednesday launched from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen, the U.S. Central Command said in a statement.

    The Houthi missile was headed toward the Gulf of Aden at about 8:30 p.m. local time. Forty minutes later, the USS Carney shot down three Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) nearby.

    The U.S. Central Command said there were no injuries or damage reported. The attack comes amid an uptick in tensions in the region. Houthis have been targeting commercial ships and vessels in the Red Sea, prompting U.S. forces to respond with a series of precision strikes.

    The Houthis say the attacks, which began in November, are intended to protest the Israel-Hamas war in the region, but many of the recent attacks have no clear ties to Israel. As a result, shipping companies have been forced to find alternative shipping routes, driving up oil prices and delaying the delivery of goods, raising concerns about the effect on the global economy.

    U.S. officials said earlier this week that U.S. troops have come under fire from Iranian-backed groups more than 160 times since late October. The attack also comes just a few days after three U.S. service members were killed and about 40 others injured in a deadly drone strike in Jordan Sunday.

    Biden has pledged to respond to the attack in a “time and manner of our choosing,” but he has also made clear he does not seek a larger war.
