American Soldiers Disappear At Bab Al-mandab After Washington Struck The Houthis by SummaryChannel: 5:08pm On Jan 13
American soldiers disappear at Bab al-Mandab after Washington struck the Houthis in Yemen. Will a regional war break out?

New content on the Houthi-West conflict presented by this episode of Samri Channel.
An American official told CNN that his country carried out new strikes against Houthi sites in Yemen, one day after launching an attack on nearly 30 Houthi sites. The Houthis' Al-Masirah channel said, "The American-British enemy is targeting the capital, Sana'a, with a number of air strikes," and people in the Yemeni capital reported on social media that they heard several loud explosions.

The Houthis had fired at least one anti-ship ballistic missile towards a commercial ship earlier on Friday. Last Thursday, the United States and the United Kingdom bombed 28 Houthi sites in an attempt to disrupt their ability to fire on international shipping lanes in the Red Sea. The two countries also received support from Canada, Australia, Bahrain and the Netherlands. The official said that the latest strike was carried out by the United States unilaterally. The United States threatened the possibility of additional military action if the Houthis continued to launch drone and missile attacks on commercial ships in the Red Sea.

“We will make sure to respond to the Houthis if they continue this terrible behavior with our allies,” US President Joe Biden said on Friday while in Pennsylvania. But after the US-led strikes, the Iranian-backed rebel group fired another anti-ship ballistic missile towards a commercial ship in Gulf of Aden, southern Yemen. Additional US strikes could be in response to the anti-ship ballistic missile launch or a continuation of previous attacks, after the US was able to conduct a battle damage assessment and identify remaining targets.

The new strikes also come after the White House said it was trying to avoid escalation. “All we are doing, all we are trying to do, is to prevent any further escalation,” John Kirby, coordinator of strategic communications for the US National Security Council, told CNN. On Thursday evening, the US-led group of strikes targeted radar and command facilities, as well as facilities used to store and launch drones, cruise and ballistic missiles. These are the primary weapons used by the Houthis to target commercial ships in the Red Sea. The attacks resulted in the killing of 5 people and the injury of 6 others, according to a spokesman for the Houthi forces. The Houthis pledged that their forces would respond to the attack.
In response to the US strikes, Mohammed Abdel Salam, the Houthi spokesman in Yemen, told Reuters that the strikes, the most recent of which targeted a military base in Sanaa, “had little impact in the context of limiting Yemeni capabilities to continue preventing Israeli ships or those heading to Israel from passing.” Through the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea. He added, "There were no casualties, no wounds, and no material or human losses," and pledged a "decisive and strong" response. Local and media sources said that 3 violent explosions rocked the Al-Dailami military base near Sanaa Airport, in an attack believed to be the result of air strikes. The Al-Dailami military base was one of the targets targeted by the American-British strikes, yesterday, Friday, among 60 targets in 6 governorates. Al-Dailami Air Base is one of the air bases controlled by the Houthi militia, and is located 15 km north of the city of Sana’a, next to Sana’a International Airport. This comes as Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder announced that the United States and its allies targeted about 30 different sites, using more than 150 A missile during the strikes carried out on Yemen. Ryder said that during the first wave of strikes, 16 sites were attacked, and the allies later targeted 12 other sites.
