CENTCOM Releases Statement on Houthi Strikes

Date:

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) has released a statement about the strikes against the Houthis.

Like statements made earlier by President Joe Biden and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, the Department of Defense reiterated that joint strikes were carried out with the United Kingdom “on Houthi targets to degrade their capability to continue their illegal and reckless attacks on U.S. and international vessels and commercial shipping in the Red Sea.”

“This multinational action targeted radar systems, air defense systems, and storage and launch sites for one way attack unmanned aerial systems, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles.”

As previously stated, the operations were supported by Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, and Bahrain.

“We hold the Houthi militants and their destabilizing Iranian sponsors responsible for the illegal, indiscriminate, and reckless attacks on international shipping that have impacted 55 nations so far, including endangering the lives of hundreds of mariners, including the United States,” said General Michael Erik Kurilla, USCENTCOM Commander. “Their illegal and dangerous actions will not be tolerated, and they will be held accountable.”
