Navy destroyer intercepts missiles fired from Yemen

A U.S. Navy destroyer intercepted several missiles launched from Yemen while operating in the region on Thursday, according to a Defense Department official.

It is not yet clear if the ship was the intended target, but no damage to the ship was reported, said the official, who was granted anonymity to discuss an incident that had not yet been announced.

The intercepts come as the U.S. continues to bolster its military presence in the Middle East in response to the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, as well as Iranian aggression in the Persian Gulf.
