The U.S. and U.K. conducted strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen as part of broader operations against Iran-linked groups.
Houthi rebels have vowed to retaliate, prompting the U.S. to take further measures against Iranian-backed militias. Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Saree warns of new aggression.
Houthi rebels attribute their attacks on global shipping to Israel’s actions in Gaza. The conflict follows U.S. airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, which have been criticized by some Republicans as inadequate for the region’s challenges.
