HODEIDAH (Debriefer)--The Ansar Allah Group, also known as the Houthis, on Thursday described recent Saudi-led airstrikes on boats off Yemen's western coast as a blatant breach of the Stockholm Agreement.
Houthi military spokesperson, Yahya Sari'a said on Twitter: "This attack aimed to cover crimes of the Saudi-led coalition and to disrupt activities at the Hodeidah and Al-Saleef seaports".
But marine and coastal defence forces will not stand idly by after this escalation and breach, he said, holding the United Nations, which he said is defending aggression and blockade on Yemen, responsible for recent attacks and continuing breaches.
Early on Thursday, the coalition, which has been fighting in Yemen since 2015, said it had destroyed two Houthi boats laden with explosives off Hodeidah province in west Yemen.
The leadership of the coalition joint forces carried out a qualitative operation destroying two military targets of the Iran-backed Houthi Group six kilometers off Al-Saleef seaport, spokesperson for the coalition, Turiki Al-Maliki, said in a statement.
The coalition accuses the Houthis of using Hodeidah to launch ballistic missiles and explosive drones and boats against Saudi Arabia.
