RTRS-US Carries Out New Strike On Houthi Anti-Ship Missiles In Yemen


Wires carrying comments from Reuters reporting that according to unnamed US officials, the US military has on Tuesday carried out a new strike on Houthi anti-ship missiles in Yemen. This would be the second direct US strike on Houthi sites in Yemen following the initial joint strikes with the UK over the weekend. At present it is unclear what the next steps will be for the US and its allies, beyond tit-for-tat airstrikes as long as the Houthis maintain their campaign of harassment against shipping.
