JERUSALEM—U.S. Forces continue to face terrorist obstacles in the Red Sea. 

Since the end of June, U.S. forces have successfully destroyed five Iranian-backed Houthi drone boats in the Red Sea and three radar site in a Houthi-controlled area of Yemen, according to statements from U.S. Central Command.

Meanwhile, the Iran-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon launched over 200 rockets on Thursday at several military bases in Israel in retaliation for a strike that killed one of its senior commanders.  The attack was among the largest by the terror group against Israel in weeks.
