The US and the United Kingdom on Saturday launched another barrage of attacks by land and sea targeting Houthi military sites across Yemen to stop the group from attacking merchant and military vessels in the Red Sea.

The US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM) said on Saturday that Tomahawk missiles were fired from the US Navy’s USS Carney at a Houthi radar site.

U.S. Central Command, its forces carried out the strikes in coordination with British troops and with support from Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Bahrain.

The U.S. military said 60 targets in 28 sites were hit in this series of attacks. US claimed, since Nov. 19, 2023 Houthi militants have attempted to attack vessels in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden 28 times.

President Joe Biden said the U.S. will respond to the Houthis as they continue their attacks.

The Houthis declares that following the strikes all American-British interests have become legitimate targets, adding the United States and Britain would “have to prepare to pay a heavy price”.

The Yemenis reiterates to continue their assaults on shipping lanes linked to Israel in southern Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandab Strait in retaliation for the war in Gaza.
