Opinion | About Those Non-Terrorist Houthis

Iran’s proxies continue to threaten U.S. assets in the Middle East, and the latest effort comes from the Houthi militia in Yemen. On Sunday the Houthis opened fire on commercial ships in the Red Sea, and a U.S. warship had to respond in self-defense.

U.S. Central Command said in a tweet on Sunday that the USS Carney responded to distress calls from commercial ships, while tracking attacks on three different commercial vessels. The Carney, an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, shot down two drones in self-defense. No one was injured.
