Feb 11, 2024

Sana'a [Yemen], February 11: The United States and Britain launched new airstrikes on Houthi targets in Yemen's Red Sea port city of Hodeidah on Saturday, the Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.
The airstrikes hit the Al-Salif port of the Al-Salif district, northwest of the city, the TV channel said, without providing more details.
Eyewitnesses said the strikes in the afternoon targeted the Houthi-controlled maritime military base.
The strikes, which followed U.S. attacks on two Houthi mobile unmanned surface vessels, four mobile anti-ship cruise missiles, and one mobile land attack cruise missile on Friday, were the latest in a series of similar attacks conducted by the U.S.-British coalition in the Red Sea against Houthi targets since November last year.
The Houthis, who control much of northern Yemen, including the strategic port city of Hodeidah along the Red Sea, have been launching deadly missile attacks on commercial vessels since mid-November last year, saying they target Israeli, U.S., and British vessels, in support of the Palestinians in Gaza.
