'Yemeni army targets three vessels, including US destroyer

The Yemeni Armed Forces say they have conducted new anti-Israel and anti-US operations, targeting three vessels in nearby waters, including an American destroyer, with missiles and drones, Press TV reports.    

Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the spokesman for the country’s army, made the announcement in a late Sunday statement.

He said the new operations were carried out in response to Israel’s crimes against Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, and also in retaliation for acts of aggression against Yemen by the United States and the UK.

Saying that the first operation targeted an American destroyer with a number of ballistic missiles, Saree added in his statement that “the second [operation] targeted the ship Captain Paris with a number of suitable naval missiles.”

He added that the targeted ship was trying to violate the Yemeni army’s decision to ban access to ports in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Both operations were carried out in the Red Sea.
