Houthis announced another strike on US nuclear aircraft carrier

The Houthis claimed to have carried out six operations against the US nuclear aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower, a US destroyer and three commercial vessels in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.

A representative of the armed forces of the Yemeni Houthis, Yahya Saria, said that the movement has conducted six operations in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. They were directed against the US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower, an American destroyer and three commercial vessels. This is the second statement by the Houthis about strikes on the aircraft carrier, Al Masirah.


Dwight Eisenhower – Nimitz-type nuclear aircraft carrier. It is named after the 34th president of the United States and was put into operation in 1977. Since the beginning of January, 2024 has been in the waters of the Red Sea.

The aircraft carrier allegedly launched several missiles and drones, following the destroyer — several drones, the Al Masirah TV channel reports the message of the Houthis. The commercial courts of Maina, Aloraiq and Abliani were attacked. The Houthis claim that the operations have achieved their goal.

On May 30, the US and British air forces struck the positions of the Yemeni Houthis. “Ansar Allah” announced at least 16 dead and 42 wounded. The next day, the Houthis attacked the American aircraft carrier.

Attacks by the Yemeni Houthis in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Bab al-Mandeb Strait have been taking place since November 2023. They attack vessels and ships associated with the USA, Great Britain and Israel. In this way, the Houthis support the Palestinian movement “Hamas” in the war with Israel. From the beginning of 2024, the USA and Great Britain will retaliate against the territory of Yemen.
