The United States and the United Kingdom launched seven airstrikes on the Abs district of the Hajjah Governorate, northwest of the country, an Al Mayadeen correspondent reported on Friday.

A source familiar with the matter said the US-British airstrikes did not target any vital or sensitive targets.

Al Mayadeen‘s correspondent in the Yemeni capital Sanaa confirmed Thursday that a US-British aggression targeted the coastal city of Hodeidah on the Red Sea, west of Yemen.

The US Central Command (CENTCOM) had earlier claimed that the destroyer shot down an anti-ship missile fired from Yemen toward the Red Sea and that no injuries or damage were reported

The latest Yemeni announcement nips in the bud CENTCOM’s claim and an earlier CNN report that cited four US officials as saying that a Yemeni missile came within one mile of USS Gravely before it was able to shoot it down.

The CNN report claimed that the attack on USS Gravely was the closest a YAF attack has come to a US warship in a series of attempts to hit US warships in the Red Sea. However, on January 25, YAF spokesperson Yahya Saree confirmed a confrontation with several US destroyers and warships in the Gulf of Aden and the Strait of Bab al-Mandab.
