Houthis say they attacked an American destroyer

Pro-Iranian Houthi militants operating in Yemen reported that they attacked the American destroyer Mason, as well as a merchant ship called Destiny, in the Red Sea. It should be noted that there are several ships with this name.

Mason is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer serving in the U.S. Fifth Fleet. In recent months, it has been off the coast of the Arabian Peninsula, participating in freedom of navigation operations.

In November 2023, the Houthis declared armed support for Hamas and launched attacks against ships within the range of their missiles and drones. To date, about 50 attacks have been recorded.
