Backed by the Arab Coalition in Support of Legitimacy, the Yemeni Army foiled an attempt by the Houthi militia to target the international shipping in the Red Sea using a booby-trapped boat.

A military source in the fifth military region today said that the Yemeni Army’s naval formation in the region managed to seize a booby-trapped boat sent by the Houthi rebels towards the international waters in the Red Sea.

The source added that the booby-trapped boat was carrying explosive devices and traveling at a high speed of 35 miles per hour on its way to international waters in the Red Sea to intercept a merchant ship.

The source pointed out that the naval military teams of the Yemeni army intercepted and halted the boat at an unpopulated island.
