The Arab Coalition's spokesman, Colonel Turki bin Saleh al-Maliki, said on Saturday that the coalition thwarted an imminent action to target international shipping routes.

"Houthi elements on the Yemeni island of Bawadi were attacked, as they planned violent operations targeting international shipping routes and international trade," the spokesman said.

He clarified that “The impending attack included planning to use the small bomb-trapped boats and a group of divers to plant naval mines in the ships.”
