The Saudi-led Arab coalition announced Tuesday that it had thwarted a drug smuggling operation from Brazil to Yemen’s Aden port.


The shipment, which was headed to the Iran-backed Houthi militias, was concealed inside a container carrying a cargo of sugar.


The confiscated drugs amounted to half a ton of cocaine and heroin.


The delivery of the shipment was facilitated by the terrorist Iran-aligned Hezbollah party.
