Insider Wales Sport: Navy successfully takes down one-way attack drones in the Red Sea

Navy Destroyer Intercepted Multiple Attack Drones in Red Sea

In a significant development, the Navy destroyer Thomas Hudner successfully intercepted several one-way attack drones in the Red Sea. This marks the second time in the past eight days that the ship has accomplished such a feat. According to U.S. Central Command, these drones were launched by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The Thomas Hudner, along with its crew, managed to evade any damage or injuries during the interception. It remains uncertain whether the attack drones were specifically targeting the destroyer or if it was a part of a larger operation.

This interception comes after a similar incident on November 15, where the destroyer had successfully shot down another drone launched from Yemen. Furthermore, in October, the fellow destroyer Carney also intercepted cruise missiles and drones in the Red Sea, which were launched by Houthi rebels.

These incidents are part of an ongoing series of attacks and retaliatory actions involving Iran-allied Houthi rebels, U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria, and Israel. The situation in the region has been tense, with various groups vying for control and power.

Geoff, the editor of Navy Times, who possesses extensive experience covering conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, welcomes any tips or information related to this story. It is crucial to gather all possible information to accurately report on the incidents and their implications.

As tensions continue to escalate in the Red Sea region, it is important to closely monitor the situation and stay informed about the actions being taken by all parties involved.
