“An unmanned U.S. drone has been shot down near Yemen by Houthi military forces, a defense official said. The official said the MQ-9 Reaper drone was over international waters in international air space when it was downed. U.S. Central Command is investigating the incident. Houthi militants took responsibility for the attack, officials said. This incident comes two weeks after Navy warship, the USS Carney, downed a series of missiles and drones launched by Houthi backed forces, and, based on their trajectory, were almost certainly headed toward Israel, traveling north along the coast of the Red Sea.” (11/09/23)
