The United States and the United Kingdom have attacked 36 targets of the Houthi group in Yemen. These attacks were carried out last Saturday night. This was stated in a joint statement of the US-led military patrol coalition in the Red Sea.

 

The statement said 36 Houthi targets were attacked in 13 locations in Yemen in response to the Houthis’ continued attacks on international and commercial ships and vessels plying in the Red Sea.

 

The BBC reported, citing a statement from the US Department of Defense, the Pentagon, that the Houthis’ “underground weapons storage facilities, missile systems and missile launch equipment, air defense systems and radar system-related targets were hit in the new attack.”

 

“Our aim is to de-escalate tensions and restore stability in the Red Sea,” the statement added. But let us reiterate our warning to the Houthi leadership. In the face of continued threats, we will not hesitate to ensure the safety of life and the free flow of trade on one of the world’s most important waterways.’

 

The US military’s Central Command said six Houthi ship-destroying cruise missiles, which were prepared to be launched into the Red Sea earlier yesterday, were destroyed.

 

The attack in Yemen came a day after the US launched strikes on more than 85 targets in Iraq and Syria. Washington has claimed the involvement of Iran’s elite force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and armed groups affiliated with the force in Iraq and Syria. About 40 people were killed in these attacks last Friday.

 

On January 28, the United States attacked Iraq and Syria in response to a drone attack on a US base in Jordan that killed three soldiers. An armed group in Iraq named ‘Islamic Resistance’ claimed responsibility for the attack
