U.S. & Allies Begin Retaliatory Air Strikes Against Iran-Backed Militants - EVOL

U.S. and British forces attacked at least 30 Houthi targets in Yemen on Saturday, U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

This was the second wave of attacks meant to weaken even more Iran-backed groups that have been attacking American and international interests since the end of the war between Israel and Hamas.

Ships and fighter jets carried out the most recent attacks on the Houthis. The strikes come after an air attack on Friday in Iraq and Syria that hit other groups backed by Iran and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. This was done in response to the drone attack last weekend that killed three U.S. soldiers in Jordan.

U.S. sources say that the Houthi targets were in 10 different places and were hit by F/A-18 fighter jets from the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier and by American warships firing Tomahawk missiles from the Red Sea.

Officials say that missiles were fired from the Navy ships USS Gravely and USS Carney.

The sources were not allowed to talk about the military action in public, so they asked to remain anonymous.

These strikes on Saturday were the third time that the US and UK worked together to attack Houthi radar
