In the early hours of Friday, the US Central Command announced that, in collaboration with the United Kingdom, it conducted strikes against 13 Houthi targets.

From approximately 3:15 to 5:00 AM (Sanaa time) on May 30, US forces targeted “eight drones in areas controlled by the Houthis in Yemen and over the Red Sea,” according to a brief press release.

The statement confirmed that US and British forces launched strikes against 13 Houthi targets in Yemen.

Escalation
Since November 19, the Houthis have been attacking commercial ships in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea, suspecting them of links to the Israeli Occupation Forces or heading to their ports, in retaliation for the aggression against Gaza.

In response, British and American forces carried out strikes on Houthi positions in Yemen.
