US launches fresh air strikes against Houthis in Yemen

In response to President Biden’s commitment to safeguard Red Sea shipping, the US executed an additional strike on Yemen’s Houthi rebels, targeting a radar site. The strike followed numerous American and British attacks on facilities of the Iran-backed group. The guided missile destroyer Carney deployed Tomahawk missiles to degrade the Houthis’ ability to target maritime vessels. The US and UK conducted airstrikes on the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, raising concerns about a broader regional conflict. Despite Houthi threats of retaliation, President Biden warned of more strikes if attacks on vessels persist in the vital waterway. Witnesses reported explosions at military bases, and the US military claimed success in reducing Houthi capabilities. The Pentagon stated that 60 targets across 28 sites were hit, while the Houthis vowed to persist in their attacks. Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a Houthi leader, denounced the strikes as terrorism on Yemen.
