In the early hours of Thursday morning (loacl time), the USS Thomas Hudner shot down multiple “one-way attack drones” launched from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen, according to U.S. Central Command. 

The drones were downed while Thomas Hudner was on patrol in the Red Sea, where she has been stationed to deter Houthi rebels from retaliating for the Israeli operation in Gaza. The ship was undamaged and no injuries were reported, Central Command said. 

It is the second time in a week that the crew of the Hudner engaged an unmanned aircraft over the Red Sea. Last Wednesday, Hudner shot down a drone that “originated from Yemen and was headed in the direction of the ship,” the Pentagon reported. The drone was taken down to “ensure the safety of U.S. personnel.”
