The joint forces engineering in the western coast of Yemen found a marine mine planted by the terrorist Houthi militia in the waters of the Red Sea, west of the country.
A military source in the engineering teams stated that a patrol from the engineering unit received a report about a foreign object that was swept away by the waves near the sea-side in the Ghalifqa area, and it was soon dealt with, dismantled and detonated by a specialized team.
The source pointed out, according to a statement published by the joint forces’ military media, yesterday, Wednesday, that these types of sea mines of various sizes were planted by the terrorist Houthi militia as part of the Iranian agenda to threaten maritime navigation and global trade in international waters south of the Red Sea.
In the context, the engineering pillar of the National Resistance of the Joint Forces, Engineer Muhammad Thamer Hizam, explained that the marine mine is an Iranian industry, a type of shell that works by collision.
He stressed, in a press statement, that fishermen’s boats or ships are at risk of these types of Iranian mines.
He explained that this mine is the twenty-second of its kind that was found and destroyed by the joint forces’ engineering, in addition to dozens of similar mines that were found by the rest of the engineering teams of the joint forces operating on the west coast.
