Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis say Hodeidah ‘escalation’ violates Stockholm deal
Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia said on Friday that the “escalation” north of Hodeidah violates the Stockholm deal, in reference to an Arab Coalition military operation.
The Arab Coalition launched a military operation north of the port city of Hodeidah against what it described as legitimate military targets, the coalition sources reported on Friday.
The coalition reported the destruction of four assembly sites for remote-controlled boats and naval mines.
A day earlier, the Arab Coalition had intercepted and destroyed an explosives-laden boat launched by Houthis from the port of Hodeidah.
There was no immediate confirmation by the Houthi militia, which had claimed responsibility for last weekend’s attacks on Saudi oil facilities. Riyadh rejected the claim and said those strikes did not come from Yemen.
