CAIRO (Reuters) – Al Masirah TV, the main television news outlet run by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement, said on Saturday that U.S. and British forces carried out a series of airstrikes in the capital, Sanaa.

U.S. and British forces conducted strikes against more than a dozen Houthi targets in Yemen on Saturday, officials said, the latest round of military action against the group that continues to attack shipping in the region.

The United States has carried out near daily strikes against the Houthis, who control the most populous parts of Yemen and have said their attacks on shipping are in solidarity with Palestinians as Israel strikes Gaza.

The months of attacks by Houthis have continued and have upset global trade and raised shipping rates.
