EUA atacam bases de mísseis Houthi em novo ataque no Iémen

January 17, 2024 - Os EUA levaram a cabo num novo ataque no Iémen contra quatro mísseis anti-navio dos Houthi, a mais recente medida contra o grupo apoiado pelo Irão pelos seus ataques à navegação no mar Vermeljo.

A U.S. official said the missiles were struck because they were being prepared to target ships in the region. The U.S. strike came a day after Houthi forces hit the U.S.-owned and operated dry bulk ship Gibraltar Eagle with an anti-ship ballistic missile, Reuters said.

In rapid succession in recent days, the Houthis fired an anti-ship cruise missile toward a U.S. Navy warship over the weekend, but the U.S. shot it down. The Houthis then struck a U.S.-owned ship in the Gulf of Aden on Monday and a Greek-owned bulk carrier in the Red Sea on Tuesday. The attacks came despite the bombardment by U.S. and British ships and fighter jets of more than 60 Houthi targets in 28 locations on Friday.
