Continued US-UK Airstrikes Target Iran-Backed Houthis for Second Consecutive Night

The US and UK coalition carried out airstrikes against Iran-backed Houthi militia in western Yemen on Sunday night. Al-Masirah News reported that eight strikes targeted Ras Isa, three strikes targeted Az Zaydiyah, and four strikes targeted Saada Governorate. As of Monday morning, the coalition had not issued a statement about the strikes. The strikes occurred less than a day after the coalition targeted 36 Houthi locations, including in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a the previous night. The strikes were carried out by the US and UK with support from other countries. According to the coalition, the precision strikes targeted sites associated with the Houthis’ weapons storage facilities, missile systems, air defense systems, and radars. The coalition stated that the strikes were a response to the Houthi’s illegal and dangerous actions, including attacks on commercial and naval vessels. Later on Sunday morning, US CENTCOM targeted Houthi land and anti-ship cruise missiles.
