UK and US strikes against Houthis

SANA’A: The United States and the United Kingdom launched a massive wave of airstrikes against the Houthis in Yemen.

The UK and US strikes against Houthis targeted more than 60 major targets at 16 locations, while the UK targeted only two locations.

The combined military effort targeted “command and control nodes, munitions depots, launching systems, production facilities, and air defense radar systems”, the Guardian reported.

The event is seen as a major escalation in the already worsening situation in the Middle East. World leaders from the East have condemned the strikes that could lead to further bloodshed in the region.
