The Arab Coalition: The destruction of a booby-trapped boat before the...

Today, Thursday, the Saudi-led Arab coalition announced that its forces destroyed a booby-trapped boat belonging to the Houthis “before they carried out an imminent attack” with it, in the southern Red Sea.

The coalition reported, according to the official Saudi “Al-Ekhbariya” channel, that “a booby-trapped boat was destroyed before an imminent attack was carried out in the southern Red Sea,” adding that it was launched by the “Houthi militia” from Hodeidah Governorate.

In general, the statement added, the Arab coalition forces destroyed “a total of 99 booby-trapped boats, with which the Houthis threatened maritime navigation.”

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia has led the Arab coalition, which has been waging intense military operations in Yemen in support of the internationally recognized Yemeni government loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, and which has been fighting the Iranian-backed Houthi forces who have controlled the capital, Sanaa, since 2014.

About 130,000 people, including more than 12,000 civilians, have been killed in the 6-year conflict that, according to the United Nations, has created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis in a country that is one of the poorest in the Arab world.

About 3.3 million people are still displaced, while 24.1 million people, more than two-thirds of Yemen’s population, need assistance, according to the United Nations.
