US/UK Conduct Joint Military Strikes On Houthi Rebels In Yemen


News wires are reporting that the US and UK militaries are conducting joint military strikes on Houthi rebels in Yemen. This follows a number of months where Houthis have targeted commercial shipping in the Red Sea. US authorities stated 27 attacks have been launched by the rebels on commercial shipping since Nov 19th last year.

  • Bloomberg noted re the strikes "The airstrikes were intended to hit at a source of the militant group’s attacks and came after the Biden administration warned there would be consequences for the barrage of drones and anti-ship missiles that had targeted ships in the vital trade waterway. Still, the action taken was limited in scope, reflecting the reluctance to expand the conflict."
