Yemen’s Bold Move: A Full Update On Red Sea Strikes, US-UK Retaliation & Major Protests

Since the onset of the Gaza genocide, Houthi rebels, who control most of Yemen, have been employing ballistic and naval missiles and drones to target and strike ships in the Red Sea that are known to be aiding Israel. Yemen believes these ships are operated by the US and UK who have been aiding Israel since the beginning of the genocide.

The most recent attack, which occurred last Wednesday, is considered the “largest” since Yemen started the Red Sea campaign against Israeli-linked vessels.

However, the latest attack wasn’t taken lightly by the US and UK, who, in response, ended up launching 73 deadly airstrikes in Yemen. The UK Ministry of Defense said that its four RAF Typhoon FGR4s performed strikes on two Houthi sites that are connected to the attacks occurring at the Red Sea.

The US also played a role, with its Air Force Command striking more than 60 targets across 16 sites in Yemen. These targets included command-and-control nodes, production facilities, and air defense radar systems.

Witnessing the attacks occurring on both sides, the world didn’t remain silent. Hundreds of thousands of people in Yemen took to the streets in several cities to protest the US and UK’s attacks. Standing behind massive Yemen and Palestinian flags, people gathered at Hodeida, Taiz, and Aden to condemn the US and UK attacks as well as reaffirm their support of Palestine.

Along with the protests, Yemen also made a major announcement in response to getting bombed. The country said that all US and UK ships are banned from traveling in the Red Sea.

This sequence of events showcases yet another example of how nations worldwide are actively fighting back against the ongoing genocide, with one of the most recent efforts occurring at the International Court of Justice, where South Africa formally accused Israel of committing genocide.
