Houthi attack thwarted in Red Sea: Arab Coalition

The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen announced this evening that it had thwarted a "Houthi terrorist attack" and damaged a merchant ship in the Red Sea.

The Coalition said that a booby-trapped boat was destroyed and a "terrorist act" was thwarted in the south of the Red Sea, while it confirmed "minor damage" to a merchant ship as a result of shrapnel of the "terrorist attack."

The Coalition added that "the terrorist acts of the Houthi militia, with Iranian support, threaten navigation and global trade."

The ship management company "TMS Tankers" had earlier announced that minor damages occurred to the tanker "Aframax Agrari" after it unloaded a shipment of oil at the port of Shuqaiq, southwest of Saudi Arabia.
