US, UK bomb Houthi sites in Yemen amid surge in Red Sea ship attacks

The United States and the United Kingdom have bombed more than a dozen Houthi sites in Yemen, officials said, as the Yemeni rebel group stepped up its attacks on ships in the Red Sea in protest against Israel’s war on Gaza.

In a joint statement on Saturday, the US and UK said their military action targeted 18 Houthi sites across eight locations in Yemen, and included attacks on underground weapons and missile storage facilities, air defence systems, radars and a helicopter.

 The Houthis said they carried out a missile strike on the US-flagged oil tanker Torm Thor in the Gulf of Aden.

"The Yemeni Navy carried out a high-quality operation to strike the US oil tanker Torm Thor in the Gulf of Aden with anti-ship missiles," the group’s military spokesman, Yahya Saree, told the Houthi-owned Al Masirah television channel.
