Arab News

RIYADH: The Arab coalition confirmed on Monday it had destroyed two booby-trapped boats of the Houthi militia in the Salif region and thwarted an imminent attack.

The coalition condemned continued Houthi threats to navigation in the Bab Al-Mandab Strait and the southern Red Sea.

It also criticized the Houthi militia’s continued violation of the Stockholm Agreement by launching hostile operations from Hodeidah.

The coalition said that the Houthi militia’s violations of international law and its targeting of civilians were grave and that it would deal with these threats firmly to protect civilians and civilian objects from hostile attack.

Recent attempted attacks by the Houthis have drawn condemnation from several Arab and Western countries, who have stressed their support for Saudi Arabia and its security.
