The coalition said on Monday its forces discovered and destroyed a remotely-controlled explosive-laden Houthi boat near Yemen’s port district As-Salif.

The Houthis have in recent weeks increased aerial attacks towards civilian areas in the Kingdom, mainly through explosive-laden drones. The Arab Coalition has succeeded in intercepting and destroying most of them.
