Thursday's strikes, authorized by President Obama, represent Washington's first direct military action against Houthi-controlled targets in Yemen's conflict. The Pentagon said the strikes were aimed at radars that enabled the launch of at least three missiles against the US Navy destroyer USS Mason since Sunday.
