The United States and Britain have carried out fresh aerial bombings against two western Yemeni provinces in response to the Arab Peninsula country's pro-Palestinian strikes.

The assaults took place on Thursday, targeting Sa'ada Province in Yemen's extreme northwest and the coastal province of al-Hudaydah.

According to Yemen's al-Masirah television network, the airstrikes hit the al-Qutainat area in Sa'ada's Baqim District.

Earlier, Lebanon's al-Mayadeen television network had also reported taking place of a number of explosions in al-Hudaydah.

The attacks against al-Hudaydah reportedly targeted the province's As Salif District.

The US and the UK have been carrying out numerous such attacks against Yemen as means of trying to pressure the country into stopping a series of operations that it has been conducting in support of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

The operations by the Yemeni Armed Forces have been targeting either Israeli vessels or those heading towards the occupied territories' ports.

The strikes have been seeking to pressure the Israeli regime into stopping an October 7, 2023-present American- and British-backed war against the coastal sliver.

More than 27,700 Palestinians, mostly women, children, and adolescents, have died in the genocidal war so far.

Yemen has vowed not to end the operations as long as the Israeli regime sustains the war and a simultaneous siege that it has been enforcing against Gaza.

Most recently, the leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement said the rising aggression by the "evil trio" of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Israel would not affect the determination of the Yemeni people to support Palestinians in besieged Gaza.

Stressing that Yemen was a free country, which could not be influenced by the US hegemony or authority, the Ansarullah chief said, "If we had been followers of treason and connivance, the Americans and the British would not have carried out the aggression against us."
