As Nuseirat 'Revenge', Houthis Attack Not Israel, But Ally UK's Warship, Days After US Carrier 'Hit'

Houthis intensified attacks on the US and UK naval coalition. Days after 'attacking' US' aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Houthi rebels claimed to have attacked the UK Navy's HMS Diamond destroyer on June 9. In a statement, Houthis said 'the hit was accurate.' However, the British Defence Ministry rejected Houthis claim as 'false.' Meanwhile, the Iran-backed militia group also claimed missile attacks on two merchant ships in the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea on June 8.
