RIYADH — The Arab Coalition supporting legitimacy in Yemen said on Thursday that it intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden boat launched by Yemen’s Houthis from Hodeidah port.

Col. Turki Al-Maliki, spokesman of the coalition, said that the naval forces of the coalition spotted on Thursday morning an attempt by the Iran-backed terrorist Houthi militia to carry out an imminent hostile and terrorist act in the south of the Red Sea by using a booby-trapped boat and a drone launched from the Hodeidah governorate.

Al-Maliki announced destruction of the booby-trapped boat, which represents a threat to regional and international security as well as to maritime transport routes and global trade.

He stressed that the command of the joint coalition forces continue to execute strict and deterrent measures against this terrorist militia and neutralize and destroy their capabilities, which threaten both regional and international security.
