In international waters, launched from Yemen
Two incoming anti ship missiles were detected earlier today, by sailors aboard the USS Mason. They were actively tracked, inbound for approximately 60 minutes until they failed, impacted and sunk into the water.
The USS Mason was on the Red Sea, off the coast of Yemen. The missiles were launched from Houthi controlled areas, who have been repurposing the anti ship missiles and firing at Saudi Arabia. Iran supports the Shia Houthi Rebels and the United States has defensive ties to Saudi Arabia.
“USS Mason detected two inbound missiles over a 60-minute period while in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen. Both missiles impacted the water before reaching the ship,” – Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis – “There were no injuries to our sailors and no damage to the ship,”
