United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Bahrain have conducted coordinated airstrikes against Houthi targets in Yemen.
This action follows warnings by the Biden administration and its allies against the Iran-backed Houthi group for their assaults on commercial vessels in the Red Sea.
Echoing Biden’s sentiments, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak described the strikes as a measure of “self-defense,” aimed at reducing tensions and reinstating stability in the region.
Over 60 sites, including command centers, munitions depots, and air defense systems, were hit with more than 100 precision-guided munitions. The strikes targeted 16 Iranian-backed Houthi militant locations.
