On 18 December, the US Department of Defense announced a multinational operation to safeguard trade and to protect ships in the Red Sea, amid the recent escalation in Houthi attacks originating from Yemen, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Defense. These attacks in recent weeks had prompted major shipping companies to reroute their operations and raised concerns of prolonged disruptions to global trade. EPA-EFE/MOHAMED HOSSAM

March 13 (Reuters) - The U.S. military said on Wednesday it had destroyed four unmanned aerial systems and one surface-to-air missile in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen.

U.S. Central Command said on the social media site X that the strikes came after Houthi militants fired an anti-ship ballistic missile into the Gulf of Aden.
