‘Direct Hit’: Yemen Targets Us Aircraft Carrier Uss Eisenhower in Red Sea With Ballistic Missiles

Yemen’s military spokesman says the country’s armed forces have targeted US aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Red Sea in response to deadly overnight attacks by America on the Arab country.

“The missile force and the naval force of the Yemeni Armed Forces carried out a joint military operation targeting the American aircraft carrier ‘Eisenhower’ in the Red Sea,” said Yahya Saree in a televised statement.

“The operation was carried out with a number of winged and ballistic missiles, the hit was accurate and direct, thanks to Allah,” he added.

Saree said this was a response to aerial strikes by the US and UK on several targets across the Arab country, which he said targeted civilians in a “blatant violation of all international laws and a full-fledged war crime.”

The American and British warplanes attacked the Yemeni capital Sana’a as well as the governorates of Hudaydah and Taiz.

Yemeni officials say the attacks on Hudaydah targeted the Radio building and the Coast Guard facility and several commercial ships,  killing at least 16 people and injuring 41 others.

The Yemeni spokesman vowed the country will not hesitate to respond directly to every new aggression on Yemeni territories, and that it will target all hostile American and British targets in the Red and Arabian seas.

The Yemeni Armed Forces have staged numerous pro-Palestinian strikes since October 7, when the Israeli regime began the Gaza war.

American and British warships have been carrying out attacks against the Arab Peninsula nation to force Yemen to stop its operations against Israeli vessels or those heading towards the ports lying in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Yemen has responded to those strikes by launching attacks on American and British assets in the Red Sea and other waters near Yemen.

On Thursday, Yemeni leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi vowed Yemeni forces will continue their military operations and escalate them “in quality and quantity” in support of Palestinians.

Yemeni rage

Also on Friday, the streets of Sana’a, the capital city of Yemen, were filled with a sea of people expressing solidarity with the Palestinian cause and advocating for sustained support for the Gaza Strip.

The participants commended the Yemeni military’s recent actions against vessels associated with Israel, the US and UK, especially the Yemeni forces’ strike on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier.

Amidst a display of Yemeni and Palestinian flags, the demonstrators carried signs that condemned the systematic eradication inflicted upon the Palestinian people by the US and Israeli forces.

Similar rallies were held across the Arab country, including the governorates of Sa’ada, Ma’rib, and Rayma.

Marking the 33rd consecutive week, these pro-Palestine demonstrations have become a regular occurrence in Yemen, beginning shortly after the initiation of Israel’s war on Gaza Strip.
