Israel’s war on Gaza live: US says Yemen strikes send ‘message’ to Houthis
The United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin says new coalition strikes on 36 targets in 13 locations in Yemen send a “clear message” to the Houthis over their Red Sea attacks.
Houthi official Mohammed al-Bukhaiti says the Red Sea attacks will continue until Israel ends its assault on Gaza, amid Israeli air raids on Khan Younis and Rafah.
The death toll from air raids in eastern Rafah has risen to 24 people as Israel says it is planning a ground invasion of the dangerously overcrowded city.
