Iranian-backed suicide bomber off Yemen uses small boat to ram against a Saudi frigate. Pentagon reports it’s meant for U.S. warship.

From Fox News:

The Iranian-backed suicide attack targeting a Saudi frigate off the coast of Yemen on Monday may have been meant for an American warship, two defense officials told Fox News…

…Two Saudi sailors were killed and three were wounded. At first the ship was thought to have been struck by a missile…

…But based on new analysis of a video showing the attack, American intelligence officials now believe this was, in fact, a suicide bomber whose small boat rammed the side of the Saudi vessel.

In the audio heard on the video, a voice narrating the attack shouts in Arabic, “Death to America, Death to Israel, Death to the Jews.”
