The border guard said via its Twitter account that three fishermen on board the boat were injured in the attack, adding that they were transferred to hospital and an investigation has been launched.
The spokesman for the Arab Coalition, Colonel Turki al-Malki, said on Sunday that the Saudi Royal Navy spotted and destroyed two Houthi boats that attempted to target Jazan port. The boats were and destroyed according to the rules of engagement, causing minor damage, Al-Malki said.
Al-Maliki stressed that the leadership of the joint forces of the coalition would strike those involved in “terrorist acts” that threaten the safety of the security of citizens and residents and the Kingdom's economic and vital capabilities, and that “such hostilities cannot pass without accountability of the perpetrators and those involved in planning and implementation”.
