The United States military said late Friday it had carried out another strike on Yemen’s Huthi rebels, this time on a radar site, a day after multiple air strikes by US and UK forces on the country’s capital Sanaa.

“US forces conducted a strike against a Huthi radar site in Yemen” at around 3:45 am local time Saturday, a statement from US Central Command said.

The strike was “a follow-on action on a specific military target” related to the previous day’s strikes, the statement said.
