U.S.-British Coalition Launched Three Airstrikes On Yemen’s Red Sea Port City

SANAA, Jun 13 (NNN-SABA) – Warplanes of the United States and British naval coalition, launched three airstrikes on Yemen’s Red Sea port city of Hodeidah yesterday, Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.

The first strike targeted the area of al-Jabbanah, in the western part of the city, while the other two targeted sites in the southern district of At Tuhayta, said the television, without elaborating further.

Residents said, they heard the sound of jets and then explosions in those targeted Houthi-held areas.

There was no immediate comment from the coalition on the fresh strikes.

The Houthis, which control much of northern Yemen, including Hodeidah, began in Nov, last year, to launch anti-ship ballistic missiles and drones targeting “Israeli-linked” ships transiting the Red Sea, to show solidarity with the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

In response, the U.S.-British naval coalition, stationed in the waters has, since Jan, conducted air raids and missile strikes against Houthi targets to deter the group, but this only led to an expansion of Houthi attacks to include U.S. and British commercial vessels and naval ships.– NNN-SABA
