Furthermore, the terrorist forces of the US Central Command (CENTCOM) for the West Asia regime issued a statement regarding the airstrikes carried out in Yemen this morning, stating that between 3:15 PM and 5:00 PM (Sana’a time) on May 30, US forces successfully destroyed 8 suicide drones in areas under the Ansar Allah movement’s control in Yemen and over the Red Sea. The statement also mentioned that US and UK forces conducted strikes against 13 Ansar Allah targets in various locations in Yemen.

This is the fifth time that the US and UK militaries have carried out a combined operation against the Ansar Allah movement since January 12. But the US also has been conducted almost daily strikes to take out Ansar Allah targets, including incoming missiles and drones aimed at ships, as well as weapons that were prepared to launch.

American officials announced that the US F/A-18 fighter jets launched from the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier in the Red Sea. Other US warships in the region also participated in these attacks.

Last November, the Ansar Allah movement began launching anti-ship ballistic missiles and drones, targeting what were ships with links to the Israeli regime transiting through the Red Sea. They said this was a show of solidarity with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

In recent months, the Ansar Allah movement stepped up attacks on shipping in the Red Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean, demanding that the end the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, which has killed more than 36,000 Palestinians.
