US Navy Targets Radar Sites In Missile Strike After Attack On Ships

​The United States military early Thursday launched the Tomahawk cruise missiles targeting three coastal radar sites in the rebel Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen, following the firing of missiles on a U.S. Navy destroyer earlier this week.
The strikes were carried out around 4 a.m. local time (9 p.m. EDT Wednesday) after the Pentagon said it would retaliate to the firing of a pair of missiles at the Navy destroyer USS Mason on Wednesday while it was in international waters close to the Bab el-Mandeb Strait.
The strikes were authorized by U.S. President Barack Obama on the recommendation of Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford, Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement.
