CENTCOM: On Feb. 1, at approximately 5:00 a.m. (Sanaa time), CENTCOM forces engaged and shot down one UAV over the Gulf of Aden. There were no injuries or damage reported. Later the same day, at approximately 10:30 a.m., CENTCOM forces conducted strikes and destroyed an Iranian-backed Houthi explosive uncrewed surface vehicle (USV) in the Red Sea. U.S. forces identified the USV heading toward the international shipping lane and determined it presented an imminent threat to merchant vessels and the U.S. Navy ships in the region. U.S. Forces subsequently struck and destroyed the USV in self-defense resulting in significant secondary explosions. There were no injuries or damage reported.Then, at approximately 12:45 p.m., two anti-ship ballistic missile were launched from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen likely towards the M/V Koi in the Red Sea. The missiles impacted in the water without hitting the ship. There were no injuries and no damage reported to the M/V Koi or coalition ships in the area. M/V Koi is a Liberian flagged, Bermuda-owned cargo ship. CENTCOM’s actions will protect freedom of navigation and make international waters safer and more secure for U.S. Navy vessels and merchant vessels
