The Saudi-led Arab coalition said on Wednesday it has destroyed two booby-trapped vessels launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen, thwarting an imminent attack in the Red Sea.


It accused the Houthis of continuing to violate the Stockholm Agreement on Hodeidah by launching attacks from the Yemeni province.


Moreover, the militias continue to threaten marine navigation and trade routes in the Bab al-Mandeb Strait and Red Sea, it added.
