US Destroyer Intercepts An Additional 14 Drones Over Red Sea
USS Carney Has Intercepted At Least 37 Drones In The Last Few Weeks.
U.S. Central Command: In the early morning hours of December 16 (Sanna time) the US Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS CARNEY (DDG 64), operating in the Red Sea, successfully engaged 14 unmanned aerial systems launched as a drone wave from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen.
The UAS were assessed to be one-way attack drones and were shot down with no damage to ships in the area or reported injuries. Regional Red Sea partners were alerted to the threat.
