WATCH: Yemeni army detonates six mines planted by Houthis in Red Sea

The Yemeni national army backed by the Arab coalition, detonated six mines planted by the Houthi militias in the international waters of the Red Sea.

A military source in the naval unit in the fifth zone of the Yemeni army said that the military naval teams were able to find six mines near the sea port of Habel in Hajjah governorate, and detonated them, despite the attempt by Houthis to hide them at two meters deep down in the sea.

The Houthis are trying to disrupt navigation in the Red Sea by trying to plant mines that threaten international shipping.

On Thursday, the Arab coalition said that they had thwarted a planned attack by the Houthis who attempted to use a booby-trapped boat on the shores of the port city of Hodeidah. Read more
