U.S. military officials have rejected claims by Yemen-based Houthi militants that they attacked a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Red Sea last week.

"Houthi claims about attacking USS Eisenhower are not true. or another US Navy vessel. This is an ongoing disinformation campaign that the Houthis have been carrying out for several months.” US Central Command told Voice of America.

The Houthi statement follows US and UK strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen – another attack on the group in response to its campaign to threaten shipping in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden

The Iran-backed Houthis say they are acting in solidarity with the Palestinians amid the war in the Gaza Strip.
