US Warship, Multiple Commercial Vessels Reportedly Attacked in Red Sea

  • A U.S. warship and multiple commercial vessels were attacked Sunday in the Red Sea on Sunday, according to the Pentagon, in what may mark a major escalation of military activity in the Middle East related to the Israel-Hamas conflict.
  • “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 Pentagon told the Associated Press.
  • The British military said earlier Sunday that a suspected drone attack and explosions occurred in the Red Sea, but it did not provide further details.
