Strikes by the United States and Britain on Houthi bases in Yemen yielded good results, but allied forces will continue to monitor the situation for possible counterattacks. This was stated by Pentagon representative General Patrick Ryder, according to Reuters.

"Our initial assessment is that we had good effects," he said. "We will continue to monitor and as the president and (Defense) Secretary Austin have said, we will continue to take necessary action."

According to him, no one wants to see a broader regional conflict. However, it is crucial to prevent such dangerous and reckless behavior towards civilian courts, the strikes that undermine the global economy.

Last night, on January 12, the United States and Britain, with the support of allies, carried out a massive combined strike on the bases and other military objects of the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

It is reported that numerous military objects were damaged as a result of the strikes. However, as official representatives of the United States emphasize, the strikes were executed with maximum precision and caution to avoid casualties among the civilian population.
