Yemen’s Huthis say fired missiles at US warship

Sanaa (AFP) – Yemen’s Huthi rebels say they fired “several” missiles at a US warship in the Red Sea, adding that they consider all American and British ships “legitimate targets” so long as US-UK strikes on the Iran-backed group continues. The Huthis began targeting Red Sea shipping in November, saying they were hitting Israeli-linked vessels in support of Palestinians in Gaza, which has been ravaged by the Israel-Hamas war. The Red Sea is a key shipping transit route which carries up to 12 percent of global trade.
