The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen has destroyed two explosive-laden boats that the Iran-backed Houthis planned to use in an "imminent" attack launched from the Red Sea port of Hodeidah, it said on Sunday.

The Coalition in separate statements also said it intercepted and destroyed three armed drones launched towards southern Saudi Arabia, including the city of Khamis Mushait.

“The militia's hostile attempts to target civilians and civilian infrastructure continue. We are taking the necessary operational measures in accordance with international humanitarian law,” it added.
