SANAA -- Yemen's Houthi group on Wednesday claimed responsibility for launching three attacks, targeting two US ships in the Gulf of Aden and an Israeli ship in the Indian Ocean.

"In support of the Palestinian people in Gaza, and in response to the American-British aggression against our country (Yemen), our naval forces carried out a military operation targeting the American ship (MAERSK YORKTOWN) in the Gulf of Aden, with a number of suitable naval missiles, and the hit was accurate," Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sarea said in a statement aired by Houthi-run al-Masirah TV.

"We also carried out two other military operations using bomb-laden drones, one of which targeted an American warship in the Gulf of Aden, with a number of drones, and the other operation targeted the Israeli ship (MSC VERACRUZ) in the Indian Ocean with a number of drones," he said without specifying the date of those attacks, noting that "both operations achieved their goals successfully."
