Arab Coalition destroys explosive-laden boat used by Houthis targeting Hodeidah

Published: Updated:

The Arab Coalition has destroyed an explosive-laden boat used by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis, the Coalition announced in a statement on Monday, in an imminent attack to target the strategic port city of Hodeidah.

According to the coalition, the Houthis are in violation of the Stockholm Agreement “by launching attacks from the Hodeidah Governorate.”

The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 to try to restore an internationally-recognized government toppled by the Houthis in 2014. The war has caused what the United Nations describes as the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis.

Earlier in the day, Saudi Arabia's air defenses intercepted an explosive drone launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia towards Khamis Mushait.
