President Joe Biden announced this Thursday (18) that the bombings against the Houthi militia in Yemen will continue.
Although he acknowledged that these actions failed to stop the attacks carried out by the group that is now recognized as a terrorist in the Red Sea.
“Are they [attacks] stopping the Houthis? No. Will they continue? Yes,” Biden said before boarding Air Force One, the US Presidential plane, to leave the White House.
As a result, also this Thursday, the United States carried out the fifth attack against the Houthi in Yemen in a week. According to the American Central Command, the target was a small number of anti-ship missiles that were preparing for launch.
It is worth remembering that on Wednesday (17), the US reclassified the Houthi as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity.
“These attacks are a clear example of terrorism, a violation of international law and a major threat to lives and global commerce, putting the provision of humanitarian assistance at risk,” a senior US government official said on Tuesday (16).
