The Pentagon confirmed that The US military has launched a missile attack on three radar stations in Yemen.

Peter Cook, the Pentagon Press Secretary and the chief spokesman for the Department of Defense, said: «These limited self-defense strikes were conducted to protect our personnel, our ships, and our freedom of navigation in this important maritime passageway».

These US direct strikes on the territory of Yemen have happened for the first time.

It needs to be mentioned that Washington was supporting military and financially the Saudi forces. However, their relations have recently deteriorated sharply because of the decision by the Senate bypassing the presidential veto of 9/11bill, accusing Saudi Arabia in the terrorist attack.

The US wants probably to take control of the situation in the region, without intermediaries, like Riyadh.
