JEDDAH — The Arab coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen, announced Wednesday, destroying two booby-trapped boats launched by Houthi militia and thwarting an imminent and hostile attack on oil tankers south of the Red Sea.

The coalition also said that the two boats were launched from Yemen’s Hodeida, adding that they were attempting to target giant oil tankers that have crossed the Bab Al-Mandeb Strait.

"The Houthi militia is escalating its hostile attacks to target energy sources and the vein of global economy," it added. — SG
