American and British forces targeted 18 Houthi rebel targets in Yemen on Saturday in response to attacks in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, one of which last week severely damaged a merchant ship loaded with artificial fertilizer, the AP reported.

According to a report by US officials, US and British warplanes struck targets at a total of eight locations, targeting ammunition and missile depots, launch pads, drones and air defense systems.

It was the fourth joint US-British attack on Houthi positions since January 12. In the meantime, the US military independently conducts attacks on Hutu positions and warehouses almost every day.

Numerous Houthi attacks on merchant ships in the Red Sea, a total of 57 since November, have particularly intensified in the last two or three days, the Pentagon said on Saturday.

The Houthis, who control a large part of Yemen's territory, attack merchant ships they claim belong to those helping Israel in its war against the Palestinians.

Western sources claim that the Houthis have ample support from Iran for these actions in the Red Sea.
