A French warship has shot down two drones in the Red Sea that were launched at it from the coast of Yemen, France's Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

The warship Languedoc had spotted and then destroyed the first drone at around 21:30 on Saturday, while the second at around 23:30, about 110 kilometers off the coast of Yemen.

Yemen's Houthi movement said on Saturday it would attack all ships heading towards Israel, regardless of their nationality, and warned all international shipping companies not to cooperate with Israeli ports.

The Houthis, backed by Iran, have attacked and seized several ships linked to Israel in the Red Sea and its own strait, Baba l-Mandab, a sea route through which most of the world's oil is transported.
