Britain warned the Houthis: stop attacks on ships

British Prime Minister Rishi Sonak justified the airstrikes against the Houthi militias in Yemen and threatened that new measures will be taken if the attacks on ships in the Red Sea continue.”The threat to shipping must stop, the illegal seizure of ships must end and their crews must be freed,” Sunak said.Sonak considered the action of the British as self-defense and said that these attacks were limited and there were no civilian casualties. “Today I can report to parliament that our initial assessment is that all 13 planned targets have been destroyed,” he said.The British prime minister said he would not speculate further on military action. However, Britain will not hesitate to defend its security and interests. He added that efforts have been made to resolve the conflict through diplomacy, but the Houthis have continued on their reckless path.
