The Saudi-led Arab coalition thwarted on Monday an imminent attack after it destroyed two booby-trapped vessels launched by the terrorist Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen.


The boats were launched off the coast of al-Salif in the Hodeidah province.


The coalition warned of the ongoing Houthi threat to international marine navigation and trade routes in the Mandeb Strait and southern Red Sea region.


It condemned the Houthis for violating the Stockholm Agreement on Hodeidah by launching attacks from the province.
