    • Navy helicopters fired on Iran-backed Houthi gunmen attempting to hijack a cargo ship.
    • The helicopters returned fire in self-defense, sinking three of the four small boats, and killing the crews.
    • The small boats originated from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen, said US Central Command.
