WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence – issued the following statement regarding military operations in Yemen:
“The strikes by U.S. and allied forces are a necessary step to degrading the capabilities of the Houthis and the threat they pose to one of the world’s most critical chokepoints.
“President Biden and his administration must get serious about applying pressure on Iran and its proxies to punish the terrorism they wage against the U.S. and our interests in the Middle East. Our adversaries must not doubt that perpetrating violence will be met with a response.”
