The United States and the United Kingdom conducted an eighth round of strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen, despite President Joe Biden’s acknowledgment that previous airstrikes have not deterred the group.

Defense officials argued that the strikes have removed significant Houthi capability, targeting missiles, drones, and weapons storage areas.

The strikes involved multiple nations and aimed to minimize collateral damage.

“Well, when you say ‘working,’ are they stopping the Houthis? No. Are they going to continue? Yes,” Biden said.

The action is grounded in self-defense and aims to restore stability in the Red Sea.

“We definitely feel that the strikes we have taken, the strikes tonight, the January 11th strikes with the same coalition partners and a number of self-defense strikes against imminent threats that have taken place in the interim have removed significant Houthi capability,” a military official stated.

“That does not mean they have no more capability but we definitely believe that has had an impact,” the official noted.

“Precision-guided munitions were used to destroy the targets and also to minimize collateral damage,” they said.

The Houthis’ attacks on international vessels, linked to the Israel-Hamas conflict, have prompted a surge of military assets to the region, but have not halted ongoing attacks.
