Riyadh, Dhu-AlQa'dah 6, 1438, Jul 29, 2017, SPA -- Command of the Coalition for the Support of Legitimacy, in Yemen announced here today that the port of Al-Mukha, was targeted by the Houthi militias through a booby-trapped boat full of explosives.
Al-Houthi militias targeted the port of Al-Mukha in the dawn of this day with a boat loaded with explosives, but the boat collided with a naval pier near a group of ships, causing an explosion, according to the statement.
There were no casualties and a careful follow-up of the incident and tracking of perpetrators, is going on.
The command stressed that Houthi militias and the ousted forces of Saleh continue to violate all international norms and resolutions by targeting the security of the Yemeni ports, the threat of international navigation and regional and global security, adding that these criminal practices impede the arrival of relief and humanitarian assistance and medications for cholera treatment for Yemeni territory.
The statement concluded by calling the coalition to support the legitimacy in Yemen and the international community to keep pressuring the Houthi militias and the forces loyal to ousted Saleh to implement UN Security Council resolutions 2216, to prevent these criminal practices.
