US launches second night of airstrikes against Houthis

The United States launched another round of airstrikes against the Houthis in Yemen early Saturday morning local time.

The round of strikes comes just one day after an inaugural round of air and missile strikes against targets in Yemen, launched in response to Houthi attacks on international shipping in the Red Sea. Two United States officials announced the Friday strikes, the New York Times reported.

This second round of strikes targeted a Houthi radar facility. A Pentagon official said the second round of strikes was meant to be a continuation of the first, the outlet reported.
