Fears of a wider Middle Eastern conflict appear to be both valid and likely growing. U.S and U.K attacks took place in the Red Sea today against the Houthi rebels (a profile on these people is coming up this weekend stay tuned) who have been up to some illegal attacks in the area for weeks now.
According to reports, on Wednesday joint attacks by the U.S and U.K were carried out against a terrorist group known as the Houthi Rebels. The Houthis in short are one of many groups throughout the Middle East who are known to carry out terrorist attacks.
CNN notes that the initial attacks against the Houthis came in response to repeated aggression from the group in the area that began weeks ago. Houthis maintain that the attacks are in protest for the war in Gaza and the ever-growing death toll.
Senior officials who spoke to the network appeared to suggest that the attacks may not be the only ones coming against the rebel group that is backed by Iran a longtime enemy of the West.
