Action to keep world shipping lanes open

On Saturday, US and British forces conducted an additional round of proportionate and necessary strikes in self-defence, alongside our allies, to defend lives and protect global shipping, in the face of dangerous and destabilising Houthi attacks in the Red Sea.

  • The Houthis’ have now conducted several dangerous attacks against commercial shipping and coalition naval forces since mid-November, as well as a direct attack against British warships in the Red Sea.
  • That is why on Saturday, alongside the US and other international partners, we conducted a fourth round of proportionate and necessary strikes against Houthi targets in Yemen. The threats to shipping must cease and we remain prepared to back our words with actions.
