Sanaa: The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen announced that it has destroyed four Houthi vessels in the Red Sea and a site for bomb-laden boats in the city of Hodeidah.
The coalition confirmed that the military operations had contributed to the protection of the navigation lines and international trade in Bab al-Mandab Strait and the southern Red Sea, the Saudi Press Agency tweeted.
The targeted vessels were equipped to carry hostile attacks, Xinhua news agency quoted the coalition as saying.
The coalition has been performing military operations recently in Yemen to deter the Houthi militia from launching attacks in Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
The Houthis have attacked sites in Saudi Arabia with drones and missiles, most of which were foiled by the coalition before reaching the targets.
The coalition completed its sixth year of war in Yemen against the Houthis in March 2021 to support President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
