Erdogan: UK, US turning Red Sea into ‘sea of blood’ with airstrikes against Houthis

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan slams the US and British airstrikes on Houthi targets in Yemen overnight as a disproportionate use of force and accuses the two countries of trying to turn the Red Sea into a “sea of blood.”

Speaking to reporters in Istanbul after Friday prayers, Erdogan says Ankara is hearing from various channels that the Iran-backed Houthi forces were carrying out a “successful defense” against the United States and Britain.
