RIYADH 20 September 2019: The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen’s naval arm detected on Thursday’s morning an attempt from Iran-affiliated Houthi terrorist militias to carry out an imminent hostile and terrorist act south of Red Sea by using a remote-controlled booby-trapped boat.

The Houthi terrorist militias launched this boat from the Hudeidah governorate, according to the Saudi Press Agency and Wam quoting coalition spokesman Colonel Turki Al Malki.

Colonel Al Malki labelled the launch of the explosive boat as a threat to regional and international security as well as to maritime routes and global trade.

He stressed that the Joint Forces Command continues to implement strict and deterrent measures against this terrorist militia through neutralising and destroying their capabilities which threaten regional and international security.
