The US military says it has launched strikes on Yemen’s three coastal radar sites, citing retaliation for two failed missile attacks on American warships in the Red Sea in four days.
The Pentagon claimed that three radar sites had apparently been destroyed early on Thursday in the impoverished country.
Washington has on several occasions criticized the Saudi regime for its crimes against humanity in Yemen, but has shown no sign of ending its support for Riyadh.
According to a report published by The Intercept on Monday, the United States and Britain are fully aware of the civilian nature of Saudi Arabia’s targets in Yemen and yet continue to provide the regime in Riyadh with weapons and intelligence required to hit them.
London and Washington “have indiscriminately and at times deliberately” led Saudi warplanes to strike civilian targets in Yemen during the kingdom’s months-long military aggression against its southern neighbor.
