Saudi-Led Coalition Says It Destroyed Houthis’ Explosive-Laden Boat in Red Sea

Yemen’s Houthi rebel group has intensified its attacks on the kingdom in recent months, often targeting Saudi military bases and the kingdom’s infrastructure.

A Saudi-led coalition announced on Saturday that it has “foiled an imminent attack”, hitting a boat loaded with explosives which belonged to the Houthi militants. 

Saudi state TV also cited the coalition, saying that the Houthis “continue to threaten maritime shipping lines and global trade”.

The Saudi-led coalition, which comprises mainly Arab members, has been involved in operations in neighbouring Yemen where civil war has been fought since 2014 between government forces and Houthi militants.
