US responds to latest round of Houthi attacks

by ian


The Iran-backed Houthis are launching even more attacks in the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea.

Yesterday, U.S. forces combated drones and explosives targeting commercial ships – with one missile landing in the water. No casualties or significant damage were reported. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin responded saying the U.S. must do more to stop the Houthis.

There have been over 40 Houthi attacks since mid-November. In light of the attacks, the EU is launching a naval protection mission for commercial ships in the next few weeks.
