Arab Coalition hits Houthi bomb-laden boats in Hodeidah
The Arab Coalition backing Yemen’s government against Houthis says it has hit with air strikes five bomb-laden boats that the Yemeni rebel militia had prepared to launch terrorist attacks against international shipment in Bab al-Madeb strait south of the Red Sea.
The Coalition’s spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki told reporters the militia is using Hodeidah city as a launch pad for ballistic missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and suicide and remotely controlled bomb boats.
He said by this the militia are violating the Stockholm Agreement and the Hodeiddah ceasefire deal. “They are using civilian properties in the residential areas as headquarters for their terrorist activities,” he said.
He noted that these activities are the tactics and experience of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards passed to Houthis by Iranian experts.
