Clear Facts

  • The U.S. Military has successfully neutralized several suicide drones launched from areas controlled by Houthi in Yemen.
  • The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were perceived as an immediate threat to U.S., coalition, and merchant vessels in the region.
  • The attacks from Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists occur amidst the high-alert status of U.S. forces in the region, following the assassination of an influential Iranian general.

The U.S. Military announced late Wednesday, that multiple terrorist suicide drones, launched in various areas around the Arabian Peninsula, had been destroyed. The U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) provided further details, stating, “early Wednesday morning, U.S. forces ‘successfully engaged three unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) launched from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen.’”

“Two UAVs were launched over the Gulf of Aden and one UAV was launched over the Red Sea,” CENTCOM clarified. They further indicated that between 7:50 and 8:00 p.m. (Sanaa time), additional UAVs were engaged and subsequently destroyed in Houthi-controlled locations of Yemen in the interest of self-defense.

These attack drones were classified as presenting “an imminent threat to U. S., coalition, and merchant vessels in the region.” Thankfully, no casualties or damage to ships resulted from the attacks.

The behaviors of Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists in Yemen have intensified U.S. forces’ vigilance in the region. The heightened alert comes in response to an anticipated attack from Iran and its associated terrorist proxy groups against Israel, following Israel’s removal of a high-ranking Iranian general last week, who was reportedly involved in supporting Hamas to plan and execute a terrorist attack on Israel on October 7.

U. S. officials indicate that an attack is anticipated. The sentiment is that “it’s no longer a matter of if, only when.”

“Officials believe that Iran and its terrorist proxy groups would use high-precision missiles and drones targeting a variety of targets in Israel.”

In preparation for this potential threat, Gen. Erik Kurilla, the commander of the U. S. Central Command, is planning a meeting with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, to strategize and coordinate operations should Iran decide to attack.

There are reports that Israel has been conducting air force drills, with key objectives including “preparing to target Iranian nuclear facilities and other key infrastructure.”

Last week, Israel eliminated Mohammed Reza Zahedi, the top commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s Quds Force in Lebanon and Syria, during his meeting with other Iranian commanders and leaders from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group.

Following Zahedi’s elimination, a prominent pro-IRGC political group, acknowledged Zahedi’s “strategic role in forming and strengthening the resistance front as well as in planning and executing” Hamas’s October 7 terrorist attack against Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his stance last week, emphasizing that Israel would take decisive military action against any threat it encounters. He said, “Iran has been acting against us for years — directly and via proxies. And, therefore, Israel acts against Iran and its proxies — defensively and offensively. We will know how to defend ourselves, and we will act according to the simple principle: that those who harm us or plan to harm us, we will harm.”
