Earlier in the day, the British military also confirmed a suspected drone attack and explosions in the region.

A US official confirmed to the outlet that the attack on the USS Carney and commercial vessels began at around 10 a.m. in Sanaa Yemen.

The anonymous official also said it had been going on for as much as five hours.

The Pentagon has not publicly identified where the attack came from.

The attack comes as Iran-back Houthi militants have reportedly launched multiple attacks on vessels in the Red Sea.

The rebel group has also launched drones and missiles potentially targeted for Israel amid the war with Hamas.

The USS Carney has been active in the Red Sea for some time, and intercepted three cruise missiles and several drones in October.

The missiles and drones were said to have been launched by Houthi, according to Reuters.

“We cannot say for certain what these missiles and drones were targeting, but they were launched from Yemen heading north along the Red Sea, potentially towards targets in Israel,” the Pentagon said at the time.
