The Pentagon says a US warship and multiple commercial ships have come under attack in the Red Sea

DUBAI, United Arab Emirate (AP) — An American warship and multiple commercial ships came under attack Sunday in the Red Sea, according to the Pentagon. It potentially marks a major escalation in a series of maritime attacks in the Mideast linked to the Israel-Hamas war. The Pentagon told The Associated Press: “We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available.” The British military earlier said there had been a suspected drone attack and explosions in the Red Sea, without elaborating. The Pentagon did not identify where it believed the fire came from. However, Yemen’s Houthi rebels have been launching a series of attacks on vessels in the Red Sea.
