U.S. Strikes Houthi Missiles In Yemen 

The U.S. military said it carried out a “self-defense” strike late Sunday against cruise missiles in an area of Yemen controlled by Houthi militants.

U.S. Central Command said the strike hit four anti-ship missiles that were being readied to launch at ships in the Red Sea.

A CENTCOM statement said the missiles “presented an imminent threat to U.S. Navy ships and merchant vessels in the region.”

The strike was the latest move by the U.S. military against the Iran-backed militants to counter a series of Houthi attacks targeting vessels in the important shipping lanes of the Red Sea.

Earlier Sunday, White House national security advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN’s “State of the Union” show that U.S. President Joe Biden “will do what he thinks needs to be done” if there were more attacks against U.S. troops stationed in the Mideast or American naval vessels and merchant ships in the Red Sea.
