The Iranian-backed suicide attack off the coast of Yemen

EXCLUSIVE: Pentagon believes attack on Saudi frigate meant for US warship

The Iranian-backed suicide attack targeting a Saudi frigate off the coast of Yemen on Monday may have been meant for an American warship, two defense officials told Fox News.

The incident in question occurred in the southern Red Sea and was carried out by Iranian-backed Houthi rebels. Two Saudi sailors were killed and three were wounded. At first the ship was thought to have been struck by a missile.

US OFFICIALS: IRAN CONDUCTS BALLISTIC MISSILE TEST

But based on new analysis of a video showing the attack, American intelligence officials now believe this was, in fact, a suicide bomber whose small boat rammed the side of the Saudi vessel.

In the audio heard on the video, a voice narrating the attack shouts in Arabic, “Allahu akbar [God is great], death to America, death to Israel, a curse on the Jews and victory for Islam.”

ISLAMIC BODY CALLS TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS A ‘GRAVE CONCERN’

U.S. defense analysts believe those behind the attack either thought the bomber was striking an American warship or that this was a “dress rehearsal” similar to the attack on the USS Cole, according to one official.

The attack, near the Bab al Mandab Strait connecting the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden, occurred in the same area where U.S. Navy warships came under missile attack in October.

An American destroyer shot down those incoming missiles — the first successful engagement in combat using an American SM-2 missile.

USS Nitze, an American destroyer, retaliated soon after, launching Tomahawk missiles on October 13 at multiple Houthi radar sites in Yemen.

This latest incident came a day after President Trump spoke by phone with the Saudi King to discuss setting up safe zones for refugees in Syria and Yemen. Senior U.S. defense officials who spoke with Fox News say they’re concerned by this latest incident, but are confident American warships can defend themselves.

The United States has supported a Saudi-led air campaign against the Houthi rebels in Yemen since 2015.

What happened to the AMERICAN WAY ?

Muslims Demanding Maryland Public Schools Replace Pledge of Allegiance With ‘Salah’ Prayer

Watch this Muslim Bitch Smile as she comes online because she had all Religious Hollidays Removed from Schools.

Which was her point to begin with.

This country was founded on judeo-christian values Not muslim Values to which there are any in comparison to American Values

The very same district that voted to rename Christmas Break to ‘Winter Break’ to prevent Muslims getting offended are now “demanding that the Montgomery County Public Schools’ Board of Education vote to replace the Pledge of Allegiance with ‘Salah’- a Muslim prayer ritual that is observed five times per day every day at specific times.”

So they want everything to stop while they pray 5 times a day !

I don’t believe that is a good thing and is not the American way

Victims of the Terror attack in Fort Lauderdale Florida

Olga Woltering, 84, from Georgia

Parishioners at the Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Cobb County, Georgia, remember Olga Woltering as “the life of the party.”

“She was always a bright spirit,” Ron Schaefer said. “We’d see her at church, and it was always a pleasure to see her smiling face and say hello to her.”

On Saturday, those same church members who recalled the octogenarian’s bright smile circulated news of her death.

She and her husband, 90, had been an active part of their congregation since 1978.

At Saturday evening’s Mass, Father Fernando Molina-Restrepo spoke of evil, saying there are some people walking in darkness, “bringing pain and clouds of sadness into our world.”

“We saw an example of this yesterday at the Fort Lauderdale airport,” he said.

Woltering and her husband flew to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise, parishioners said. Friends said she was originally from England. Ralph Woltering had served in the U.S. Air Force, parishioner Alvin Connolly said.

“From what I understand, their sons are in Florida with her husband right now,” Connolly said.

The couple lived in a retirement community.

“She and her husband were kind of the life of the party,” Connolly said. “They’d go to a dance, and they’d be the last ones on the floor.

“You look at them and say, ‘Man I hope I can do everything they do when I’m that age,’” Connolly said.

Woltering was active in the ladies auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic charity affiliated with her church, said Roger Heil, the grand knight of the local Knights of Columbus group. Her husband was involved in the Knights of Columbus, he said.

Terry Andres 62 of Virginia Beach, Virginia

Terry Andres started celebrating his 62nd birthday on Friday. He was getting ready to go on a 16-day cruise when authorities said Esteban Santiago ended his life at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Andres and his wife, Ann Andres, flew to Fort Lauderdale from Virginia Beach, Virginia. They were at the Delta Sky Club, when he decided to go get a luggage cart. He died at the baggage claim area of Terminal 2.

Ann Andres survived. Their daughter Ryan Kim  and the families of four other victims killed were still trying to understand what happened.

“I know that everyone always says that people are the greatest in the world, but he was the greatest person you could know,” Kim said during an interview with the Palm Beach Post. “He never had a horrible word to say about anyone or anything.”

Andres was a member of the Oceana Volunteer Fire Department. Other members of the department said he had been a support technician since 2004.

“He was well liked and respected for both his dedication to being a volunteer, as well as his professional approach,” the department said in a statement, according to WAVY-TV.

Michael Oehme, 57

 

Iowa couple Michael and Kari Oehme loved to travel. They were heading to Fort Lauderdale on Friday for another high-seas adventure when they were caught in the spray of bullets that killed five people at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Michael Oehme, 57, was fatally shot. His wife, 55, was shot in the shoulder and is expected to recover, according to a family member.

Michael Oehme was a surveyor and had his own company called Boundaryline Surveys Oehme-Nielsen & Associates, according to public records. His wife is a customer service representative for a telecommunications company, according to her Facebook profile.

They live with their dog in a two-story home in the Wilshire Heights subdivision in Council Bluffs, a city of 62,000 residents in Iowa just east of Omaha, Neb. A neighbor said they have lived in the development for at least 20 years.

They have a daughter, Andrea Oehme, 28, who works in food service at a hospital, according to her social media profile.

They have a daughter, Andrea Oehme, 28, who works in food service at a hospital, according to her social media profile.

The day of the shooting, she updated her profile photo with “Pray for Fort Lauderdale” and her cover photo with an image of a candle that read “Pray for Ft. Lauderdale Airport Shooting Victims.”

Through their social media posts, which include selfies, the Oehmes radiated love, a tight family of three. One of Andrea Oehme’s updates reads, “Family is everything.”

On Father’s Day, she posted, “Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing man I’ve ever met … MY DAD!!! Love you to the moon and back Daddy.”

In a photo from last February, she posed with her mom on a Florida dock and wished a happy birthday “to my best friend and the best mom ever!! I’m so lucky to have you in my life.” Another 2016 image shows them smiling while attending a Ringo Starr performance.

And in a separate post last year, Kari Oehme wrote on her daughter’s page, “No matter how old you are, we will never leave your side. Love you so, so much.”

Elizabeth Oehme-Miller said that her brother Michael and her sister-in-law were preparing for a Caribbean cruise scheduled to depart Saturday.

She said they traveled often, enjoyed cruising and were looking forward to their next trip, according to The Associated Press. She also added that a family member is heading to Fort Lauderdale to be with Kari Oehme.
