Yemeni forces destroyed an explosives-laden boat targeting a United Arab Emirates military vessel at Mokha port on Wednesday.
A source at the port said that the foiled terror attack was initiated by Houthi militias.
A large explosion was heard across the port when forces eliminated the threat before it reached the docked ship.
Earlier on Wednesday morning, Yemen National Army forces repelled a Houthi militia attack south of Taiz city. The militia sustained heavy casualties in a battle that involved the use of heavy weapons.
