WASHINGTON Oct 15 A U.S. Navy destroyer was
targeted on Saturday in a failed missile attack from territory
in Yemen controlled by Iran-aligned Houthi rebels, the third
such incident in recent days, a U.S. defense official said.
Multiple missiles were fired at the USS Mason in the Red Sea
but the warship took countermeasures and was not hit, the
official said, citing initial information.
The U.S. military launched cruise missiles on Thursday
against three coastal radar sites in Houthi-controlled areas in
Yemen in response to two previous failed missile attacks.
