Houthis say attacks in Red Sea will continue despite US, UK airstrikes in Yemen

A spokesman for the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen says there was no justification for the airstrikes carried out by the US and UK in Yemen overnight and adds that the group will continue targeting ships heading towards Israel.

The United States and Britain launched strikes from the air and sea against Houthi military targets in Yemen in response to the group’s attacks on ships in the Red Sea, which it has claimed are in support of Gaza amid the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas — despite many of the targeted vessels appearing to have no connection to Israel.
