A top US admiral says a USA warship has again come under fire in the Red Sea from multiple cruise missiles fired from the coast of Yemen.
The ship that allegedly came under attack from Yemeni shores was identified as guided missile destroyer USS Mason, which "launched counter-measures and was not hit", AP reported Saturday, citing the official, who it said spoke on condition of anonymity since he was not authorized to discuss the incident publicly.
Multiple missiles were fired at three USA warships in the Red Sea, though none was hit and there were no casualties, the U.S. military said, amid rising tensions with Yemen's Houthi rebels.
But the USA strikes earlier this week did not take out Huthi missiles and, though the radar destruction makes it harder to aim the weapons, officials have warned rebels could still use spotter boats or online ship-tracking websites to find new targets. A US Navy destroyer was again targeted in the Red Sea in an apparent failed missile attack launched from the coast of Yemen, a US admiral said yesterday.
Two U.S. citizens were released in Yemen by Houthi rebels battling the government there, the State Department confirmed Saturday.
"We can not emphasize enough today the urgency of ending the violence in Yemen", he told reporters, according to Reuters.

The American cruise missile strike from USS Nitze, which USA officials said destroyed the radar installations, marked the first direct United States involvement in Yemen's two-year civil war.
Johnson said the conflict in Yemen was "causing increasing global concern; the fatalities that we're seeing there are unacceptable". Since then, the US has flown refueling missions for Saudi aircraft, supplied targeting intelligence, and resupplied the Saudi effort with tens of billions of dollars of weapons.
The Iranian-backed Huthi rebels have denied carrying out the attacks.
Speaking to reporters in Switzerland, where he was attending talks on Syria, Kerry said a plane flew the Houthi delegation to Yemen from the Omani capital, Muscat, and returned with people wounded in the funeral hall strike.
Obama described the retaliatory strikes as "limited and proportionate" and said at the time that "the United States stands ready to take action in self-defense, as necessary and appropriate, to address further threats".
An Omani aircraft landed in the rebel-held Yemeni capital on Saturday to evacuate 115 of the most seriously wounded from a Saudi-led coalition strike on a funeral last weekend, a rebel official said.
