Saudi Navy Destroys Two Suicide Boats Near Jizan Port

A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, Colonel Turki al-Malaki, announced on September 30 that the Royal Saudi Navy detected and destroyed two remotely controlled water-borne improvised explosive devices (WBIEDs) of the Houthis, which were on their way to hit the southwestern Kingdom’s port of Jizan.

“The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will strike with an iron fist all those who get involved with acts of terrorism, which threaten the safety of Saudi nationals, residents, economy and critical facilities … Those hostile acts will not go by without holding the ones executing, plotting and planning them accountable for their actions,” Col. al-Malaki said in an official statement, according to the UK-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper.

Hours earlier, the al-Masirah TV reported that the Yemeni Navy [loyal to the Houthis] had carried out a “special operation” against military targets inside the port of Jizan. The Yemeni TV channel said that several boats of the Saudi Coast Guard were destroyed as a result of the operation.

“The targeting of the Saudi Coast Guard boats in Jizan is a response to the strike on the fishermen’s boats in al-Hudaydah [in western Yemen],” said General Sharaf Luqman, a spokesman for the Yemeni military.

Prior to this attack, the Houthis claimed that they targeted the Dubai international airport with a “Samad-3” armed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). However, the UAE denied these claims.

These operations are clearly an attempt by the Houthis to deter the Saudi-led coalition, which stepped up its aerial operations over Yemen in the last two months.

    This is a smart move, if the Houthis can scare international shipping, the price of oil will skyrocket, and the axis powers will pressure the Saudis.

      Then they play directly into the hands of the americans if you think about it, as it is what they want. Oil prices to go up so their oil and gas become competitive. Think about it

  • Design a submersible unmanned boat. Even if it’s just 3 feet below the surface it can make successful night attacks!

    If its radio-controlled, then it can’t be a “suicide” boat…

    Houthis are too smart to blow themselves up. That job goes to shit-thick Saudi Wahhabi dogs who are a dime per dozen in KSA slums.

    Yeah, I just had to say it.

    Look at the image, Houtis, what you could do, is take the same base construction, the hull, and seal it, submerge the thing, just some feets under the water line, and think range, and how to drive this submerged thing forward.

    It can be easily radio controlled, since its an simple vessel, and no matter what, once submerged it will stay that way, and can be steared, etc, or if you do your home work, valve controlled water pumps or close them to sub, to have the direction corect, etc, or use the latest toys, web cameras.

    peace
