When asked whether U.S. strikes have succeeded, President Biden said, “Are they stopping the Houthis? No. Are they going to continue? Yes.” 

With U.S. strikes against Iran-linked targets on Feb. 2, President Biden attempted to fulfill his vow to “hold all those responsible to account” for a Jan. 28 drone attack on a U.S. outpost in Jordan by Iran-

backed militia that killed three U.S. service members and injured at least 40 more.
