The United States carried out airstrikes against Yemen's Houthi rebels for the first time in that country's civil war, destroying three coastal radar sites with Tomahawk cruise missiles in retaliation for missile fire earlier this week toward U.S. Navy ships.At around 7 a.m., the missiles hit radar sites in three locations along the Red Sea coast: Ras Eissa, Khoukha and Makha, according to Col. Walid Zeyad, a Yemeni naval official in the nearby Red Sea port of Hudaida.No information on casualties from the U.S. missiles was provided by American officials. That's contradicted by the U.S. Navy, which says it has intercepted several shipping boats since the war began carrying Iranian weaponry suspected to be on the way to Yemen.Cook declined to comment on the reports of Iran's naval deployments but said it would not be surprising.He also said the U.S. had "no information" on whether the missiles used to target the USS Mason may have been supplied by Iran.
