February 04, 2024

It was the second night in a row that aircraft from the Eisenhower have targeted Houthi militants in Yemen who are attacking cargo ships in the Red Sea. NBC News is currently the only news organization embedded with the U.S. Navy in the Red Sea while it is conducting strikes. On Friday, the carrier’s F/A-18 aircraft intercepted multiple drones that Houthi forces were preparing to launch, military officers told NBC News. Deputy Pentagon press secretary Sabrina Singh vowed that the U.S. would continue its effort to degrade Houthi forces and safeguard shipping in the Red Sea. Courtney Kube reported from the USS Eisenhower and Dan De Luce from Washington.
