US, UK strikes targeted over 10 Houthi facilities

According to the report, the choice of targets was justified by the need to weaken Houthi capabilities for attacking ships in the Red Sea

Friday’s strike, delivered by the United States and the United Kingdom, targeted more than 10 facilities in Yemen used by the Ansar Allah (Houthi) movement, CNN said citing own sources.

According to the report, the choice of targets was justified by the need to weaken Houthi capabilities for attacking ships in the Red Sea. Targets included radars, warehouses with drones, ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as launch sites.

CNN also said the strikes were prepared in advance.

In turn, Politico reported that the operation was carried out with the support of Australia, Bahrain, Canada and the Netherlands. The strikes were performed by warplane, surface ships and submarines.

The Al Hadath television said, citing US sources, that no civilians were present at the facilities at the time of the attack.

Yemen’s capital city of Sana’a and a number of other cities were bombed by warplanes of the United States and the United Kingdom in the early hours of Friday, the Ansar Allah (Houthi) movement was quoted as saying by Al Jazeera.

In turn, Sky News Arabia reported that Sana’a International Airport was heavily bombed. Air strikes were delivered on targets in the provinces of Sana’a, Al-Hudaydah, Sa’dah and Dhamar.

Houthi positions near the western Yemeni port city of Hudaida are also under heavy fire, the Al Hadath television said. Also, the US and the UK attacked Ansar Allah bases in the province of Hajjah.

Al Hadath reported that strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen were being delivered by planes, ships and submarines.
