Before the strikes took place, defence analysts Sam Cranny-Evans and Dr Sidharth Kaushal had argued, in a commentary for RUSI, that "the most effective course of action would involve strikes against limited but valuable target sets within the Houthi organisation". "Doing so would impact the group’s ability to continue its missile strikes while minimising the risk of a wider regional conflict, thereby enabling the US and other navies to free up capacity for other strategic concerns," they said.
