Navy SEALs Missing Off Somalia Coast Ignite Search Operations

Seal etiquette requires jumping into the water to rescue a fallen colleague. A U.S. defense official said search operations are underway, but the SEALs’ fate is unknown.

Since mid-November, Houthi militants in Yemen have attacked commercial ships in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, increasing U.S. naval activities. Rescue missions and Houthi drone and missile interceptions have been conducted by U.S. Navy ships. Recent airstrikes hit approximately 30 Houthi targets.

The missing sailors were reported on January 11 evening, and U.S. Central Command confirmed search and rescue operations on Friday. Due to operational security, no more information will be disclosed until the personnel recovery operation is complete.
