The Yemeni army and the Houthis have warned against further attacks on the country by Washington as both parties deny attacking US warships.
Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman, a spokesman for Yemeni forces, stressed on Thursday that Sana’a reserves the right to defend itself from threats whether they be Saudi or American.
“The direct American attack targeting Yemeni soil this morning is not acceptable,” Yemen’s Saba news agency quoted Luqman as saying.
“Yemen has the right to defend itself and we would deal with any development with the right steps,” he added.
This came after the announcement that the United States destroyed three Yemeni radar sites.
