BREAKING VIDEO: US Attacks Iranian-Backed Forces

( – BREAKING NEWS ALERT: In a significant escalation of military operations showcasing the might of coalition forces, the United States and the United Kingdom launched retaliatory strikes against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.

See the video below.

The strikes were in response to a series of recent attacks by the Houthis on commercial vessels. According to the White House, the Houthis are responsible for at least 27 drone and missile attacks near the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, claiming to be in opposition to Israel’s military actions in Gaza against Hamas.

The U.S. and U.K., with support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, and the Netherlands, recently targeted several sites in Yemen. This marks the first case of deliberate U.S. strikes against Houthi-linked targets since the group escalated its attacks on international shipping in late 2023.

In a statement, the U.S. government underscored the significance of these strikes, noting they were a direct response to the Houthi’s unprecedented attacks in the Red Sea, including the use of anti-ship ballistic missiles for the first time in history. Following consultations with the National Security Council and briefings with Parliament, U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was set to authorize these strikes.

The forces’ offensive employed fighter jets and naval vessels, including submarines launching Tomahawk missiles. U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin specified that the coalition’s targets included the Houthis’ drone, ballistic and cruise missile capabilities, as well as their coastal radar and air surveillance systems. Austin also emphasized readiness for further actions to protect U.S. forces.

According to U.S. officials, Houthi forces fortified their positions and hid sensitive assets in anticipation of these strikes. Houthi leader Abdul Malik al-Houthi had previously warned of retaliation against any U.S. strikes, referring to a significant attack carried out using drones and missiles.

The U.K. has been actively participating in the U.S.-led coalition, Operation Prosperity Guardian, with a destroyer deployed in the Red Sea to deter attacks and ensure the safety of international shipping. Despite these efforts, major shipping companies continue to avoid Red Sea transit routes due to the ongoing threat posed by the Houthis, who recently targeted a U.S. guided-missile destroyer in the region.

The U.S. military presence in the Red Sea includes 130 aircraft and warships from the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group, comprising approximately 4,000 sailors and Marines.
