Arab Coalition: Houthis training militants to target Yemeni ports

Published: Updated:

A spokesperson for the Arab coalition fighting to reinstate legitimacy in Yemen has said that entry of relief vessels into Hodeidah Port continues and that they have granted 1,800 permits for aid ships to enter Yemeni ports.

Turki al-Maliki, the coalition spokesman, said at a press conference on Wednesday that Houthi militias were training their fighters to target ships, pointing out that the port of Hodeidah has become a starting point for operations threatening maritime navigation, and that the militias also threaten air navigation over the capital Sanaa.

Maliki said the Houthi militia was using radars to monitor navy ships near ports, adding that there was considerable evidence of foreign experts in Yemen to support the militants’ operations.
