    US-British Airstrikes Target Yemen, Al-Masirah Reports Casualties

    Overnight airstrikes conducted by joint US-British forces targeted multiple locations in Yemen, including the capital Sanaa and the port city of Hodeida. Witnesses reported hearing loud explosions, with the rebel Huthi-controlled channel Al-Masirah stating that telecoms infrastructure in Taez was also hit during the strikes.

    According to Al-Masirah, the airstrikes resulted in casualties, although the exact number was not independently verified immediately. The British defense ministry confirmed its involvement in the operation, stating that the strikes aimed to degrade the Huthi military’s ability to target international shipping in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.

    These strikes are part of a series of retaliatory actions since January by the United States and Britain in response to Huthi attacks on shipping vessels. Despite these measures, the Huthis have continued their threats, including targeting US and British ships and vessels bound for Israeli ports.

    In a recent development, the Huthis claimed responsibility for attacking a Greek-owned bulk carrier and other vessels, citing retaliation against Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip. The situation underscores the ongoing tensions and volatility in the region, with military actions and counteractions heightening concerns about maritime security and regional stability.
