  • According to unverified reports, F-35 B Lightning stealth jets stationed at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus are prepared for deployment.
  • These aircraft are expected to play a major role in the strikes, targeting Houthi rocket launcher sites and command centres if they occur.
  • British drones equipped with RX-9 missiles are also reportedly on standby.

The Prime Minister chaired a virtual emergency meeting in Downing Street this evening with his top team in the cabinet where he briefed them on the plans, with Foreign Secretary David Cameron seen entering No10.

The plans were finalised today following meetings of the Prime Minister's National Security Council and the emergency committee Cobra.
