United States and Allies Bomb Yemen over Gaza Protest

The U.S.-led strikes against the Houthi Militia after more than two dozen attacks against commercial shipping in the Red Sea since the start of the Israel-Hamas war.

The United States and a handful of its allies on Thursday carried out military strikes against more than a dozen targets in Yemen controlled by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, U.S. officials said. An expansion of the war in the Middle East that the Biden administration had said they sought to avoid for three months.

The Biden administration and allies warned the Houthis of serious “consequences” if the attacks continued. However, Houthis rejected the ultimatum, continuing their attacks as a form of protest against Israel’s incursion into Gaza. 

The White House statement on the strikes on Yemen calls them defensive attacks, done with assistance from the United Kingdom, Australia, Bahrain, Canada and the Netherlands to protect the freedom of navigation of the Red Sea. 

The strikes were targets on radars, missiles, drone launch sites and weapons storage areas, according to a U.S. official, who said President Biden had approved the assault.

Houthi leader Abdel-Malik Badr al-Din al-Houthi on Thursday said in a statement responding to the attacks, “The response to any American attack will not only be at the level of the operation that was recently carried out with more than 24 drones and several missiles, but it will be greater than that.”

“We never see a military action as a resolution,” Qatar’s prime minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, said in a news conference on Sunday, about the Houthi attacks on ships in the Red Sea.

Reactions from Congress

Numerous Congressmembers came out against the act, citing a violation of the Constitution, specifically the first Article.

Progressive Caucus Chair Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash) tweeted out on X, formerly Twitter, “This is an unacceptable violation of the Constitution. Article 1 requires that military action be authorized by Congress.”

Representative Ro Khanna (D-CA) tweeted, “The President needs to come to Congress before launching a strike against the Houthis in Yemen and involving us in another Middle East conflict…” 

Representative Val Hoyle (D-CA) echoed similar sentiments in a statement, “These air strikes on Yemen were not authorized by Congress… Every president must first come to Congress and request military authorization, regardless of which party he belongs to.”

Republican members of Congress have voiced support for the bombings.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued a show of support for the bombing while criticizing Biden for waiting so long, “I welcome the U.S. and coalition operations against the Iran-backed Houthi terrorists responsible for violently disrupting international commerce in the Red Sea and attacking American vessels. President Biden’s decision to use military force against these Iranian proxies is overdue.

Republican Senator Roger Wicker (R-Miss) echoed McConnell’s statement, “This strike was two months overdue, but it is a good first step toward restoring deterrence in the Red Sea…”
