Yemen's Houthis warn US against further attacks

Yemen's Houthi movement warned the United States against hitting Yemeni territory again after US cruise missiles targeted coastal radar sites on Thursday in retaliation for failed missile attacks on a Navy destroyer.
"The direct American attack targeting Yemeni soil this morning is not acceptable," Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman, a spokesman for Yemeni forces fighting alongside the Houthis, was quoted as saying by the Houthi-controlled Saba news agency.
"Yemen has the right to defend itself and we would deal with any development with the right steps."
He reiterated a denial that Iran-aligned Houthi forces had carried out missile attacks on the US warship.
