US-UK Launch Strikes Against Houthis In the Red Sea

Fill in Houthis in Yemen initiated a large-scale attack on vessels in the Red Sea, resulting in a significant naval clash involving the British and American navies.text

A barrage of drones and missiles was deployed, specifically targeting vessels near the Yemeni port cities of Mokha and Hodeida.

The incident unfolded as the U.N. Security Council was poised to vote on condemning and demanding an immediate halt to the Houthi attacks.

The attacks jeopardise a threat to a crucial international trade route vital for connecting Asia, the Middle East, and Europe through the Red Sea.

The U.S. military's Central Command labelled it a "complex attack," incorporating anti-ship ballistic missiles, anti-ship cruise missiles, and drones equipped with explosive payloads.

U.S. and U.K. warships drowned 18 drones, 2 cruise missiles, and an anti-ship missile.

Attacks on crucial Red Sea waterways heighten concerns over potential disruptions in global trade, further complicated by a provisional cease-fire between the Houthis and a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
