Newly released footage by the Saudi Navy shows Iran-backed Houthi rebels attacking a Saudi naval frigate off the coast of Yemen on Jan. 30, 2017, which killed two Saudi sailors and wounded at least three more.
Initially, the Houthis claimed the attack was carried out by means of a guided missile. However, the following footage disputes such assertions. Defense officials believe the Houthis had intended to, and thought they were striking a US Naval vessel.
