The US has carried out a fourth round of strikes on Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen.
According to Pentagon officials who confirmed the incident on Wednesday night, 14 Houthi missiles, which the US says may have been intended for attacks on shipping in the Red Sea, were launched.
The strikes came as the US designated the Houthis as global terrorists and that the reversed decision to remove the designation in the early days of the Biden administration was in response to the militants’ ongoing attacks on commercial shipping in the region.
The Houthis began attacking merchant vessels in November, saying they were responding to Israel’s military operation in Gaza and have since then, launched dozens of attacks on commercial tankers passing through the Red Sea.
The US National Security disclosed that the Wednesday’s strikes on Houthi targets followed further attacks on commercial shipping on US owned and operated vessel for the second time this week.
