US and UK launch missile strikes against Houthi targets in Yemen

25/2/2024 6:24
        U.S. and British forces
        carried out strikes against more than a dozen Houthi targets in
        Yemen on Saturday, officials said, the latest round of military
        action against the Iran-linked group that continues to attack
        shipping in the region.
        
        The United States has carried out near daily strikes against
        the Houthis, who control the most populous parts of Yemen and
        have said their attacks on shipping are in solidarity with
        Palestinians as Israel strikes Gaza.
        
        The months of attacks by Houthis have continued and have
        upset global trade and raised shipping rates.
        
        A joint statement from countries that either took part in
        the strikes or provided support, said the military action was
        against 18 Houthi targets across eight locations in Yemen
        including underground weapons and missile storage facilities,
        air defense systems, radars and a helicopter.
        
        U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the strikes were
        meant "to further disrupt and degrade the capabilities of the
        Iranian-backed Houthi militia."
