Saudi-led Coalition Says It Destroyed Houthi Booby-Trapped Boat In Red Sea

The Saudi-led coalition announced on September 19 that its naval forces had successfully intercepted and destroyed a booby-trapped boat in the red sea.

Col. Turki al-Malki, a spokesman for the coalition, said that the booby-trapped boat was launched by the Houthis from the shores of the western Yemeni province of al-Hudaydah.

“The coalition’s naval forces detected today’s morning, Thursday (September 19, 2019), An attempt by the Iranian Houthi terrorist militia to carry out an imminent hostile and terrorist act in the south of the Red Sea using a remotely-controlled booby-trapped boat, which the Houthi terrorist militia launched from al-Hudaydah … The booby-trapped boat was destroyed,” the spokesman said in an official statement.

The Houthis used remotely-controlled water-born improvised explosive devices (WBIEDs) to attack Saudi-led coalition warships several times during the last few years. According to a report by the Conflict Armament Research (CAR), these WBIEDs include Iranian components.

The Yemeni group has not commented on the Saudi-led coalition’s claims, so far. If confirmed, the attack attempt with a WBIED will be the first in several months.

      why nobody remember that Houthi tribes kick off the Yemeni king sponsored and defended by Saud in 1962? Very similar to the today situation. And at that time there was a shia in Persia, not the Iranian Republic. You are not only stupid but also ignorant

      Hallo Nazi sion, do you know the news? The leader of the Lau (united Arab list, 3rd party in Israel who took 12 seats in the elections), announced that he was ready to join a center-left coalition in exchange for the resumption of negotiations with the Palestinians and the cancellation of the law, approved last year, which proclaims Israel the state of Jews only and not of all its citizens. No party of the Nazis of the Talmud will make a government with the Arab citizens of Israel. Really beautiful, your Nazi Cazar South Africa on the Mediterranean.

    I don’t want to be in this Turki guy’s shoes.
    Imagine you have a very well-paid job with good benefits, housing and company car and your only task is to deliver good military news to your highly unstable boss which is on horse tranq… but you can’t deliver!
    The good news is you won’t be fired and the worst that can happen to you is to be hacked and sawed in your country’s consulate in Istanbul, but on the side, the consulate building is sold at half price silently! So, you are safe…. for now. Dammit man! Improvise! Go ahead an invent some good news!

    The most important part is the boat has wires which are made in Iran. Now don’t you pay any attention to other, unimportant parts like the CPU, camera, batteries, servos and engine made in the UK, US, Taiwan, China, etc.

    I had no idea that Houthis are Iranian and not Yemeni. I think we really ought to start saying: Saudi-made ISIS, Emirate-funded Shabaab, US-trained PKK, Israeli-backed PJAK and so on.
