Riyadh (Debriefer) - The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said Thursday its navy destroyed two Houthi booby-trapped boats in the Yemeni western port city of Hodeida.
The coalition joint forces early on Thursday attacked and smashed two legitimate military targets of the Iranian-backed Houthi group 6 km off Salif port in Hodeida, spokesman for the coalition said in a statement.
The two remote-controlled booby-trapped boats "posed a looming threat to the global sea shipment and trade and to the regional and international security," Colonel Turki al-Maliki added.
The boats were equipped to carry out imminent hostile, terrorist acts in Bab al-Mandeb Strait and south of the Red Sea, he claimed.
The Houthis use "Hodeida governorate as a base to fire ballistic missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and drone, bomb-laden boats, and to randomly plant naval mines in blatant violation of the international humanitarian law and the Stockholm Agreement," the spokesman added.
