U.S. Strikes Houthi Targets in Yemen; Kata’ib Hezbollah to Suspend Attacks on U.S. Forces

HeadlineFeb 01, 2024

U.S. forces have bombed Yemen again. U.S. Central Command said the attack targeted 10 Houthi drones and a ground control center. The Houthis have vowed to continue targeting ships linked to Israel and the United States until Israel halts its assault on Gaza.

Meanwhile, NBC News is reporting President Biden is considering launching a weekslong retaliatory campaign against Iran-backed militant groups following Sunday’s deadly drone strike on a secret U.S. airbase in Jordan. On Wednesday, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said Tehran was “not looking for war.” One powerful Iraq-based militia group, Kata’ib Hezbollah, has announced it will halt operations targeting the United States in the region, saying it wanted to “prevent embarrassment” to the Iraqi government. The Biden administration had accused the group of being involved in the Jordan drone attack.
