AMMAN — A US Navy guided missile destroyer was targeted in a failed missile attack from territory in Yemen controlled by Houthi militias, Pentagon spokesperson Captain Jeff Davis said.

The failed missile attack on the USS Mason began around 7 p.m. local time, when the ship detected two inbound missiles over a 60-minute period in the Red Sea off Yemen's coast, the US military said.

It was unclear what actions the US military might take, but Davis stressed a commitment to defend freedom of navigation and protect US forces.
