U.S. Military Conducts Third Large-Scale Airstrikes On Yemen (Video)
Late on February 3, the US-British fighter jets carried out 48 airstrikes on Yemen, according to Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the spokesman of the Yemeni Armed Forces.
The details of last night’s attacks are as follows:
- 13 attacks in Sana’a province (Al-Nahdayn, Atan, Bani Hashish district, etc.)
- 9 attacks in Hudaydah province. (Jabal al-Jada’ in the Al-Lahiya district, Al-Salif district and Aqban Island)
- 11 attacks in Taiz province. (Al Barah and communication networks of Muqbanah and Haifan districts)
- 7 attacks in Al-Baydha province. (Rada’ and Al-Sawadiya districts)
- 7 attacks in Hajjah province. (Al-Jar area)
- 1 attack in Saada province.
In his message, Brigadier General Saree emphasized that these attacks will not go unanswered, and Yemen will not give up on its moral, religious and humanitarian position of “supporting the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip”.
The United States army’s terrorist headquarters in the region (CENTCOM) said in a statement that this operation is in line with the so-called international efforts to respond to increased Iranian-backed Houthi destabilizing and illegal activities in the region; And the strikes are intended to degrade Houthi capabilities used to continue their attacks on U.S. and U.K. ships as well as alleged international commercial shipping in the Red Sea, Bab Al-Mandeb Strait, and the Gulf of Aden.
Of course, the term “international commercial shipping” by the United States means ships affiliated with Israel or destined for Israeli ports!
According to this statement, the U.S. coalition operation was carried out with the participation of British fighter jets and with the support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, and New Zealand at 23:30 (Sanaa time) against 36 Houthi targets in 13 locations in different areas of Yemen. These targets included multiple underground storage facilities, command and control, missile systems, UAV storage and operations sites, radars, and helicopters.
This operation is the third large-scale invasion of the American and UK armies in Yemen in support of Israel’s interests in the Red Sea. According to the published images and information, this operation was carried out by four Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets of the British Army and 24 U.S. F-18 fighter jets, as well as warships equipped with Tomahawk missiles.
Also, a few hours after this attack at 4 a.m. on February 4, the US military allegedly conducted a strike against an anti-ship cruise missile prepared to launch against ships in the Red Sea.
According to Brigadier General Yahya Saree’s short message and the available evidence, the Yemeni Armed Forces will respond to this attack. The responses of the Yemeni army are currently limited to the level of missile and drone attacks on ships and naval fleets, and there is a possibility that it will become more widespread as tensions increase.
