Overnight, a large-scale attack by the United States and the United Kingdom was launched against numerous Houthi targets in Yemen, the New York Times reports, citing US administration sources, explaining that the attacks were aimed at reducing the ability of the Iranian-backed militiamen to attack ships along routes in the Red Sea.

Commenting on the operation, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin explained that “Houthi rebels will continue to face retaliation for their attacks on ships in the Red Sea and surrounding waters.” “The United States will not hesitate to act, if necessary, to defend life and the free flow of commerce in one of the world’s most critical waterways.”
