The U.S. Central Command said early Saturday its forces struck an anti-ship missile it said was in Houthi-held territory and "aimed into the Red Sea and which was prepared to launch."

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, CENTCOM said U.S. forces destroyed the missile in self-defense after it determined that the "missile in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen" presented "an imminent threat" to merchant vessels and U.S. Navy ships in the region.
