US Launches Strikes against Radar Sites in Yemen

Washington, – The US military launched strikes against three radar stations in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

The strikes, authorized by President Barack Obama, came in response to a failed attack on a US navy ship on Sunday which was launched from Houthi territory.

A naval vessel had detected two inbound missiles, however both fell short of their target and hit the water, according to a Pentagon statement. “The United States will respond to any further threat to our ships and commercial traffic … and will continue to maintain our freedom of navigation in the Red Sea,” a US Department of Defense statement said. The radar sites were destroyed in the strikes, the Pentagon said.
