The Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen, led by Saudi Arabia, thwarted a Houthi drone attack against a Saudi commercial ship in the Red Sea yesterday.
In a statement, the coalition confirmed that the Houthi militias’ threat “with Iranian support” to shipping lines and global trade south of the Red Sea continues, recalling that the efforts of its forces “contributed to securing freedom of navigation and the safety of ships transiting the Bab al-Mandab Strait.”
Yemeni officials told Asharq Al-Awsat that this is a “remarkable development that confirms this group’s indifference to all sincere calls to end the war and reinforces what we have always said about it.” They added, “Iran wants the Houthis to sit in the square of war and not leave that square.”
For his part, Dr. Hisham Al-Ghannam, Senior Adviser and Director of the International Studies Program at the Gulf Research Center (Cambridge), warned of the impact of relief prices, whether food commodities, shipping costs, insurance and others. And he added, “With this action, the coalition protects the Yemenis, millions of whom, according to UN figures, live on relief.”
It is noteworthy that the coalition monitored updated statistics of the total violations of the Houthi militia, as the number of ballistic missile attacks that targeted Saudi civilians and civilian objects amounted to 383 missiles, 690 booby-trapped drones, while the number of booby-trapped boats reached 79 boats, and 205 sea mines.
