Foreign media have reported that the aircraft carrier Eisenhower has been rearmed and returned to the Red Sea after a brief hiatus.

Business Insider and Al Arabiya confirmed in reports published unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 7th, that the colossal USS Eisenhower has headed eastward into the Mediterranean for a “quick mission.”

Business Insider cited a spokesperson for the US Navy who reported that the destroyer USS Dewey (part of the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group) and the guided-missile destroyer Arleigh Burke-class USS Gravely had departed the port in Souda Bay, Greece, following a recent visit to continue their security mission in the Red Sea.

The return of these warships to the Red Sea comes as Houthi attacks on Western forces stationed in this sea have increased, and US intelligence officials have warned that the conflict may continue for some time.

Al Arabiya’s English section reported, citing a US Defense Department official, that since the beginning of their attacks on November 19 last year, the Houthis have conducted 140 attacks in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

It’s worth mentioning that USNI News first reported on Tuesday that Eisenhower had returned to the Red Sea.

The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69), whose official mission began for the first time in October 1977, has played a role in the capabilities of the US Navy for several decades.
