The United States and the United Kingdom conducted a coordinated wave of airstrikes against Houthi rebels in Yemen, hitting at least 30 targets in a move to counter the Iran-backed militants’ influence in the Red Sea region.

This action, a part of ongoing retaliatory measures, aims to address the disruptions caused by the Houthis amid the broader conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.


Deploying from the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, US F/A-18 fighter jets, alongside Tomahawk missiles from Red Sea ships, executed Saturday’s strikes. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin confirmed these operations, targeting the Houthis’ weapons storage, missile systems, air defense systems, and radars. Austin stated, “This collective action sends a clear message to the Houthis that they will continue to bear further consequences if they do not end their illegal attacks on international shipping and naval vessels.”

These recent operations mark the third instance of joint US-UK military efforts against the Houthis, targeting drones and radar sites, and follow the US Navy’s interception of Iranian drones and a ballistic missile from Yemen.
