Houthis Fire Missiles Towards USS Gravely and USS Carney

Over the past 24 hours, Houthi forces in Yemen have launched missiles towards two American Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers in the region.

United States CENTCOM confirmed that a Houthi cruise missile was fired towards the USS Gravely last night and was intercepted with no reports of injuries.

Defense officials told CNN that a Phalanx CIWS was used to intercept the missile within one mile, marking the closest interception so far and also suggesting a potential failure of shipboard interceptor missiles.

Likewise, officials told Fox that a Houthi ballistic missile was fired towards the USS Carney earlier today in the Gulf of Aden and was successfully intercepted with a SM-6 extended range surface to air missile, marking its first ever operational use.
