UPDATE: The Saudi side claims that the Houthis attacked an oil tanker, not a warship.
On July 25, the Yemeni Navy [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had targeted a Saudi warship off the western Yemeni coast, pro-Houthis Al Masirah TV reported.
Accoriddng to Al Masirah TV, the Navy hit “the Saudi Dammam ship”. However, no additional details or reports on possible casualties or damage were released.
Al Masirah TV also claimed that thirty nine days ago the Navy destroyed two UAE warships during their failed attempt to carry out a landing operation near the port city of al-Hudaydah. This claim has also remained unconfirmed so far.
It’s the fact that the UAE Navy attempted to carry out a landing operation near al-Hudaydah, but its vessels were forced to retreat after the Houthis had launched anti-ship missiles. However, there have been no evidence confirming destruction of any of the vessels involved in the operation.
Since the start of the battle fo al-Hudaydah in early May, the Yemeni Navy and the Missile Forces have once again increased their operations against the Saudi-UAE-led coalition targets in Yemen and near it.
