The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) announced Thursday that its forces “successfully engaged and destroyed four unmanned aerial systems (UAVs)” for the Yemen’s Houthis in addition to destroying one surface-to-air missile.

The Houthis fired one anti-ship ballistic missile towards the Gulf of Aden between 2:00 AM and 4:50 PM (Sanaa time) on Wednesday, March 13.

It did not impact any vessels and there were no injuries or damage reported, according to CENTCOM, after which the US forces retaliated by destroying the UAVs and the surface-to-air missile.
