Arab Coalition successfully intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden boat in the Red Sea, launched by Iran-backed-Houthi militia in Yemen on early Wednesday.
The Arab Coalition also reported that a merchant vessel was slightly damaged as a result of a shrapnel from the terrorist attempt.
"The terrorist acts of the Houthi militia, with Iranian support, threaten navigation and global trade," the Coalition added.
Earlier on Wednesday a British maritime security company, Ambrey, said that a Greek-operated tanker was damaged by a mine at a Saudi Arabian terminal, damaging its hull.
The blast happened early Wednesday and struck the MT Agrari, a Maltese-flagged, Greek-managed oil tanker near Shuqaiq, Saudi Arabia.
“Their vessel was attacked by an unknown source,” a statement from the Agrari’s operators said. “The Agrari was struck about 1 meter above the waterline and has suffered a breach. It has been confirmed that the crew are safe and there have been no injuries.”
