US, British forces conduct fresh airstrikes against capital Sana’a, several regions in Yemen

The United States and Britain have carried out a fresh round of strikes in the Yemeni capital Sana’a and other regions in the country, as Yemeni forces launch retaliatory attacks in the Red Sea in solidarity with Palestinians amid the Israeli onslaught against Gaza.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing local sources speaking on condition of anonymity, reported that US and British military aircraft hit at least 35 targets across Yemen late on Saturday.

The sources added that the joint strikes mainly targeted Faj Attan, al-Nahdin and al-Hafa neighborhoods in Sana’a. Witnesses reported major explosions in the city.

More than 11 air raids were conducted against areas in the Maqbanah and Hayfan districts of Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz. There were no immediate reports about possible casualties and the extent of damage caused.

US and British forces also conducted three strikes on al-Lahiya and As Salif districts in the strategic western province of Hudaydah, with no quick reports about victims and damage available.

Additionally, seven raids were reported in the al-Jar area in the Abs district of the northwestern province of Hajjah.

Al-Mayadeen TV went on to report that US and British warplanes also launched several airstrikes against a number of sites in Yemen’s western province of Dhamar, and the central province of al-Bayda as well.

Yemenis have declared their open support for Palestine’s struggle against the Israeli occupation since the regime launched a devastating war on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian resistance movements carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.

The United States and United Kingdom have been carrying out strikes against Yemen after the Biden administration and its allies offered the Tel Aviv regime unqualified support and said that Yemeni forces bear the consequences of their attacks against Israeli-owned ships or merchant vessels heading to the occupied territories.

Yemeni Armed Forces have said that they won’t stop their attacks until unrelenting Israeli ground and aerial offensives in Gaza, which have killed at least 27,131 people and wounded another 66,287 individuals, come to an end.

Leader of the Ansarullah resistance movement, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, has said that it is “a great honor and blessing to be confronting America directly.”

The attacks have forced some of the world’s biggest shipping and oil companies to suspend transit through one of the world’s most important maritime trade routes. Tankers are instead adding thousands of miles to international shipping routes by sailing around the continent of Africa rather than going through the Suez Canal.
