The US military reported the destruction of Houthi missiles and drones

WASHINGTON, Feb 27 – The US military destroyed three unmanned surface vehicles, two anti-ship cruise missiles and an attack drone on Monday as it continues its confrontation with the Ansar Allah (Houthi) movement that rules northern Yemen, US Central Command (CENTCOM) said.
The military says the weapons it found in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen posed “an immediate threat to commercial and U.S. Navy ships in the region.”
The ruling Ansar Allah (Houthi) movement in northern Yemen, which controls most of Yemen’s Red Sea coast, previously warned of its intention to attack any ships linked to Israel, calling on other countries to recall their crews from them and not to approach them at sea. A number of shipping companies have decided to suspend transportation through the Red Sea.
The Houthis have said their actions in the Red Sea are aimed at helping Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and they have argued that they are not interfering with freedom of navigation in the region. Arab and Muslim countries have repeatedly warned the United States that unconditional support for Israel’s actions in the Gaza Strip will lead to the spread of the conflict throughout the region.
The US and UK have been carrying out strikes on Houthi targets since mid-January, calling it a response to threats to freedom of navigation in the Red Sea. Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a member of Ansar Allah’s highest political council, called the attacks a terrorist barbarity and deliberate and unjustified aggression.
