US Hits Dozens of Houthi Targets in New Round of Yemen Strikes


The United States, along with Britain, hit dozens of Houthi targets on Saturday in a new round of airstrikes in Yemen.

The Biden administration carried out its first round of strikes against the Iran-backed group last month after the Houthi’s targeted shipping vessels in the Red Sea.

On Saturday, the U.S. and Britain hit at least 30 Houthi targets, American officials told The Associated Press.

The multiple rounds of strikes are a part of America’s response to Iran-backed groups who have attacked U.S. and international interests.

Last week, Iran-backed militants carried out a drone strike that killed three U.S. service members and injured dozens more.

The rising conflict in the Middle East in recent months began after Hamas led the deadliest Palestinian militant attack on Israel in history on October 7, 2023. Israel subsequently launched its heaviest-ever airstrikes on Gaza, home to more than 2 million Palestinians.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is available.
