On July 8, Colonel Turki Al-Malki, the official spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition claimed that coalition forces had thwarted an attack on some commercial vessel in the Red Sea by a remote explosive boat of Yemen’s Houthis [Ansar Allah].

“Al-Maliki said that the coalition forces spotted the unmanned boat while it was moving, then intercepted and destroyed it, stressing that threating the international navigation and trade by the Iran-backed Houthi militia is considered a serious terrorist act and reaffirming that the coalition forces will keep neutralizing all hostile terrorist capabilities of the Houthi militia,” Saudi Arabia’s state SPA news agency reported.

The interesting fact is that the Saudi-led coalition calls itself “Coalition to Support Restoring Legitimacy in Yemen“. The Saudi leadership has apparently got some lessons from their US and Israeli counterparts that actively use loud terms like ‘democracy’, ‘legitimacy’ and ‘press freedom’ to justify their own agressive actions in the Middle East. The next step is to claim the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invasion of Yemen is needed to restore ‘democracy’ there.

Saudi sources also released photos of the explosive boat that was allegedly used by the Houthis:

The Saudi-led coalition is fiercely attempting to brand Houthi actions as a kind of terrorism. On the other hand, the Yemeni resistance movement says that its strikes on Saudi military targets and infrastructure are merely a response to the bloody Saudi bombing campaign that caused a wide-scale humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country.

    The saudi-led coalition is lying so desperately, that even the opposite of their claims seems to be untrue.

    Netanyahu to visit India before Israeli election. This would be second election in Israel this year. Now Israel has no proper elected prime minister.

    2019 is the last year of Israel existence. Israel 1948 to 2019.

        I’m sure the Russian navy could help assist with securing the straits of Hormuz.and Bab al-Mandeb too.

        If necessary.

        Do you realize how stupid you are to talk like 14 dead sailors to avoid a global nuclear catastrophe? You Jews can’t wait to pull one of your illegal atomic bombs on the people of Iran, right? You are anti-Russian and Nazi as Hitler was. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2c3f7d8635fd4b90354a10e5a484050c781bad1386a8a035fd3be55f53461232.png

          Who said the 14 Russian sailors died to avoid a global nuclear catastrophe, Putin or some other clown?

          • iosongasingsing

            You really are anti-Russian hater, you should be ashamed as you are Jewish, probably Ashkenazi and preaching the shoah. The Russians had 22 million deads to save us from Nazism, including you Jews. Russia is a holy Christian country that the Jewish Bolsheviks tormented as many deaths as Hitler did.

            Ok, ok, tell me more about how did the 14 dead sailors avoided a global nuclear catastrophe, make a nice story, then I believe you.

      • Brother Ma

        I am not convinced these actually work. Wouldn’t you have to send out maybe fifty of these boats to ensure one even gets through to damage even a murican frigate? Even then what is the chance you will sink it and render it useless even as weapons launch platform before it blows up air defence bases and shoots down planes?

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    lol the piece of shits name is Turki, i hope one of these boats eventually goes off right next to him
