US Navy warns American-flagged ships to stay away from parts of Red Sea as Houthis vow revenge

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The US Navy warns American-flagged vessels to steer clear of areas around Yemen in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden for the next 72 hours after the US and Britain launched multiple airstrikes targeting Houthi rebels.

The warning in a notice to shippers comes as Yemen’s Houthis are vowing fierce retaliation for the US-led strikes, further raising the prospect of a wider conflict in a region amid the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.
