The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) announced Tuesday that its forces destroyed three unmanned surface vessels (USV), two mobile anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCM), and a one-way attack unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in a “self-defense” strike against the Houthis, according to an official statement.

CENTCOM added that the USVs and the ASCMs were prepared to be launched towards the Red Sea, and the UAV was over the Red Sea at the time of the strike.

It added that they identified the targets and determined that they presented an “imminent threat to merchant vessels and to the U.S. Navy ships in the region.”
