– Yemen's Ansarullah announced Friday that US and British forces launched 73 strikes on Yemen, killing five of its combatants.

Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesman of the Yemeni armed forces, announced in a statement on Friday "The American-British enemy, in the context of its support for the continuation of the Israeli crimes in Gaza, launched a brutal aggression against Yemen with 73 strikes."

Saree said the raids targeted "the capital Sanaa and the governorates of Hodeidah, Taiz, Hajjah, and Saada."

These attacks led to the death of five Yemeni combatants and the injury of six others, the spokesman added.

US and UK forces launched air, ship, and submarine strikes against Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters early on Friday, allegedly targeting weapons storage, air defense, and logistic facilities.

US President Joe Biden said in a statement, “Today, at my direction, US military forces—together with the United Kingdom and with support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, and the Netherlands—successfully conducted strikes against some targets in Yemen used by [Ansarullah forces] to endanger freedom of navigation in one of the world’s most vital waterways.”

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak also confirmed that the Royal Air Force, alongside US forces, and with “non-operational support” from the Netherlands, Canada, and Bahrain, carried out the attacks on Ansarullah fighters in Yemen.
