Iran is feeding these munitions to the Houthis in Yemen: Col. Joe Buccino
Col. Joe Buccino says the U.S. must strike Iran to get to the heart of the matter on ‘America Reports.’
A U.S. official told Fox News that the U.S. carried out strikes Wednesday evening on about a dozen Houthi missiles inside Yemen that were being staged to fire on commercial ships in the Red Sea/Gulf of Aden.
This comes after U.S. forces struck a Houthi-owned cache of anti-ship ballistic missiles in Yemen on Tuesday, U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News Digital. The strike was reportedly in direct response to a missile launched against U.S. vessels in the Red Sea.
Houthi forces have taken credit for continued attacks on merchant vessels and threatened to expand their targets to include U.S. and British vessels — all in a campaign to support Hamas in its war against Israel.
