Yemeni Ansarullah Forces Hit Saudi-Led Coalition’s Warship in Mokha

Sunday 13 August 2017
Yemeni Ansarullah Forces Hit Saudi-Led Coalition’s Warship in Mokha

Alwaght- Yemen's Ansarullah Movement forces hit a Saudi-led coalition's warship n the Red Sea port of al-Mokha, SABA news agency reported on Saturday.

The SABA news agency, quoting an Ansarullah military source, said: "The Yemeni navy and coastguards targeted one of the warships belonging to the invasion and aggression forces inside al-Mokha port and hit it with precision."

However,the Saudi-led  coalition spokesman, Colonel Turki al-Malki, in a confronting  report said the Ansarullah Forces attempted to attack al-Mokha port in the early hours of Saturday, using a remote-controlled boat packed with explosives.

"The coalition forces detected the boat three miles off the port, while it was sailing at 39 knots, and was intercepted by the coalition defense and diverted from its initial trajectory," al-Malki said in a statement sent to Reuters.

He did not give further details.

Yemeni launch retaliatory attack against warships belonging to Saudi-led coalition shipping in the narrow Bab al-Mandab waterway at the entrance to the Red Sea, a major choke point in the world oil trade. A Saudi-led coalition started a bloody aggression on Yemen in March 2015 to oust the popular Ansarullah movement and restore to power fugitive Abdul Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who resigned as president and fled to Riyadh. The Saudis have failed to achieve their stated objective and are now stuck in the Yemen quagmire while indiscriminately bombarding the impoverished stated on an almost daily basis.

The Saudi war on Yemen, one of the world's most impoverished countries, has killed nearly 13,000 people and left tens of thousands wounded while displacing millions.
