Yemen has reacted to the upcoming deployment of the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier in West Asia and the departure of its predecessor USS Dwight D. Eisenhower from the Red Sea, urging incoming US marines to “learn their lesson” from the fate of their outgoing counterparts.

“We advise marines aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier to inquire about the situation of their counterparts on USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, and learn their lesson,” Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, said.

Houthi was referring to the multiple maritime operations that Yemeni naval units have carried out against Eisenhower aircraft carrier in response to US and British strikes on Yemen, and in solidarity with the Gaza Strip, which has been reeling from a no-holds-barred Israeli war since October 7 last year.

The US military said the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) has departed the Red Sea after more than eight months of deployment.

The USNI News later reported that the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), currently in the Pacific, will leave for West Asia to continue a US presence mission in the region.

The announcement came hours after Yemeni Army’s Spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree said on Saturday the country’s naval units had conducted a missile attack on US aircraft carrier Eisenhower in the Red Sea.

Saree said that the USS Eisenhower was targeted “directly” by several ballistic and cruise missiles.

Hazam al-Assad, a member of Ansarullah’s political bureau, also stated that Yemeni forces will press ahead with their pro-Palestinian operations.

“Attacks against US, British, and Israeli interests will continue. This is in line with Yemen’s unwavering support for the Palestinians in Gaza,” he said.
