Saudi Navy stops attack on Jizan Port
The Royal Saudi Navy Forces have destroyed two explosive-laden Houthi boats targeting Jizan Port, according to a Saudi Press Agency report.
Colonel Turki Al-Malki, the official spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, stated that the Royal Saudi Navy Forces detected an attempt by the Iranian-Houthi militia to target Jizan Port, reported the Saudi Press Agency.
Mr Turki Al-Malki clarified: “at 04:50 and 05:05, the Royal Saudi Navy Forces detected the movement of two remote-control explosive boats headed to Jizan Port. They were intercepted and destroyed in accordance with the Rules of Engagement, which has led to minimal damage.”
He added: “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 capabilities. Those hostile acts will not go by without holding the ones executing, plotting and planning them accountable for their actions.”
Last week, Port Strategy reported that the neighbouring Houthi-held Port of Hodeidah in Yemen is facing intensified fighting which is impacting flow of goods and aid.
