RIYADH: The Arab coalition said on Wednesday that it had destroyed three booby-trapped boats during an operation targeting a site in Hodeidah governorate.

The coalition said that the boats had been prepared to carry out imminent attacks and that the site was being used to assemble and arm boats.

Later on Wednesday, the coalition said it had destroyed a site in Al-Jawf, northern Yemen used by the Houthis to arm and launch drones.

It added that it had destroyed two drones that were being prepared to carry out an imminent hostile act towards Saudi Arabia.

“Our efforts have contributed to protecting shipping lanes in the Bab Al-Mandab strait and the southern Red Sea,” the coalition said about the first operation.
