Coalition forces find naval mine northwest of Yemen’s Midi Port

Published: Updated:

Coalition forces, who are backing the internationally recognized government in Yemen, discovered on Monday a naval mine southwest of the southern Arabian Peninsula’s Midi port.

The Yemeni national army dismantled the mine right away without causing any damages.

The Iran-backed Houthi militias along with forces loyal to deposed former Yemen president Ali Abdullah Saleh were said to have planted the mine.

Coalition forces have called on the international community to counter arms smuggling to the militias, which are used by the latter to wreak havoc in the region especially by delaying aid arriving to Yemen via its ports.

The Houthis continue to target water channels to incur damages on ships.
