US Forces Shoot Down Houthi Missiles And Drones


Handout photo dated July 18, 2011 shows an F/A-18E Super Hornet assigned to the Eagles of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 115 is prepared for take-off from the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) in the Indian Ocean. On Tuesday, U.S. fighter jets and a warship shot down an onslaught of missiles and attack drones in the southern Red Sea over a 10-hour period, military officials said. The downed weapons included a dozen one-way attack drones, three anti-ship ballistic missiles and two land attack cruise missiles. “U.S. assets, to include the USS Laboon and F/A-18 Super Hornets from the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group, shot them down,” said U.S. Central Command, the Pentagon’s top combatant command in the Middle East. “There was no damage to ships in the area or reported injuries.” It wasn’t clear exactly what the drones and missiles were targeting, but U.S. forces in the region have carried out a number of “self-defense strikes” and shot down other drones and rockets in recent months.
