US and British warplanes launched a fresh airstrike in Yemen’s western province of Al Hudaydah on Wednesday, the Houthi group said.

The attack targeted the Al-Jabana area west of Al Hudaydah city, the Houthi-run Al-Masirah television reported.

No information was provided about casualties or damage.

Al-Jabana area houses a Houthi-run air defense camp, according to Yemeni media.

There was no comment from the US or UK on the report.

Al Hudaydah is a major Yemeni province with three vital ports and a long coastal strip.

Since the beginning of 2024, a coalition led by the US has been conducting airstrikes that it said are targeting Houthi locations in parts of Yemen in response to attacks by the group in the Red Sea. The counterattacks have been occasionally met with retaliation from the group.

In solidarity with the Gaza Strip, which is facing a devastating Israeli offensive, the Houthis have targeted Israeli cargo ships or those associated with Tel Aviv in the Red Sea with missiles and drones.

With the intervention of Washington and London and an escalation of tensions, the Houthis announced that they now consider all American and British ships as military targets.
