UAE Armed Forces destroy two Houthi militias boats in Red Sea Coast

HODEIDAH, Yemen, 23rd May, 2018 (WAM) -- The UAE Armed Forces, as part of the Arab Coalition Forces, today morning destroyed two boats of the Iranian-backed Houthi militias in international waters, who were threatening one of the commercial oil tankers in the Red Sea, while two other boats managed to escape.

The Houthi militias have repeatedly attacked merchant ships and threatened commercial shipping and global trade routes in the Red Sea starting from the Hodeidah port, which is still under their control. The militias are carrying out these terrorist acts, in a state of being desperate as a result of their successive losses in the Red Sea Coast.
