Tomahawks Target Houthi Sites in Yemen: US Navy Launches Cruise Missiles


The United States and Great Britain, with the support of Australia, the Netherlands, Bahrain and Canada, launched joint strikes against Houthi targets in Yemen, the Pentagon said. The strikes were from fighter jets and Tomahawk missiles. More than a dozen Houthi targets were hit by missiles fired from air, surface, and sub-platforms and were chosen for their ability to degrade the Houthis’ continued attacks on vessels in the Red Sea, CNN reported.

On Tuesday, however, the Houthi rebels fired their largest-ever barrage of drones and missiles targeting shipping in the Red Sea, with US and British ships and American fighter jets responding by shooting down 18 drones, two cruise missiles and an anti-ship missile.

On Thursday, the Houthis fired an anti-ship ballistic missile into the Gulf of Aden, which was seen by a commercial ship but did not hit the ship.

The rebels, who have carried out 27 attacks involving dozens of drones and missiles just since November 19, said Thursday that any attack by American forces on its sites in Yemen will spark a fierce military response.
