- The US military has turned Yemen into three radar installations which are in an area controlled by Houthi rebels. This would prevent the US that missiles are fired at their destroyer USS Mason and other naval vessels sailing off the coast.
The Pentagon announced that President Obama has authorized the attack in order to protect US ships in the Red Sea from attack. Mason was Wednesday for the second time within a few days the target of missiles. Both times which incidentally missed their target. The Mason fired after the second strike some warning salvos.
The rockets were fired from the Houthi area. The rebels denied on Thursday that they have fired the rockets.
