US officials are pointing at Iran for supplying Yemeni militias with the missiles used to target an American Navy warship in three failed attacks this week.
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, who was briefed by the Pentagon on the failed missile attacks on the USS Mason destroyer, dubbed Iran on Thursday as the likely provider for the missiles.
McCain said the US Navy “has delivered a strong message” after he backed the Pentagon’s move by launching cruise missiles that destroyed the Iran-backed Houthi militia’s mobile radar sites used.
The mobile radar was used by the Houthis to launch their missiles, which were believed to be C-802 anti-ship weapons.
