RIYADH 11 December 2020: The Arab Coalition on Wednesday evening thwarted a hostile attempt by the Houthi militia to attack Saudi Arabia using two bomb-laden Unmanned Surface Vehicles launched from the Hodeidah Governorate towards the Southern Red Sea, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

In a statement, coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al Maliki said that the USVs, which pose a threat to regional and international security, Sea Lines of Communication and International Trade, were destroyed by the coalition’s naval forces, said Wam.

Al Maliki said the Houthi militia is using Hodeidah as a launch site for ballistic-missiles, bomb-laden drones and unmanned water vessels, as well as to deploy naval mines, “in a clear, blatant violation of the international humanitarian law and the Stockholm Agreement’s ceasefire provisions.”

“The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to implement all rigorous, deterrent measures against this terrorist militia, and neutralise, destroy such capabilities that pose a threat to regional and international security,” he added.
