The Saudi-led Arab coalition announced that it had thwarted two attacks by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen on Friday morning, including destroying an explosive-laden boat in the southern Red Sea, Saudi state TV said on Twitter.


The coalition also intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by the Houthis towards Saudi Arabia, state TV channel Ekhbariya said on Twitter.
