London: US and British forces bombed dozens of targets used by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s reaction has come after this major attack on the positions of Houthi rebels. Sunak said on Friday that the joint air strike with the US against Houthi rebel positions in Yemen was necessary for self-defense. This is the first US-led strike against the Houthi rebels, who have been targeting ships in the Red Sea since November 2023.

‘There were attacks on British and American ships’

Sunak accused the Iran-backed group of threatening British ships. The US Air Force said more than 60 targets were struck in 16 locations used by the Houthis in Yemen. “Despite repeated warnings from the international community, the Houthis have continued attacks in the Red Sea, including attacks on British and US warships this week,” Sunak said. This cannot be tolerated. Britain will always stand for freedom of navigation and free trade. We have taken action in self-defense.
