Arab coalition destroys Houthi boat rigged with explosives

RIYADH: The Arab coalition intercepted and destroyed a Houthi boat laden with explosives on Thursday. 

The boat, that was launched from the governorate of Hodeidah, was destroyed in the southern Red Sea, coalition spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki said. 

Yemen's Houthis are backed by Iran and have been accused by the Arab coalition of repeatedly attacking shipping in the Red Sea since the conflict started in 2014.  

Iran has been accused of being behind the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities that took place on Saturday. An investigation into the attacks continues.
