 US warships fired onAn American warship and multiple commercial ships came under attack Sunday in the Red Sea, and Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip intensified as the war escalated following a weeklong truce.

“We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available,” the Pentagon said Sunday in an email to USA TODAY.

The Carney, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, is described on its website as "505 feet of American fighting steel." It was not damaged and no serious injuries were reported, a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity told the Associated Press.
