The Arab Coalition claimed that they have removed 157 naval mines placed in the south of the Red Sea by Iran-backed Houthis, according to Saudi Arabian press.

The Coalition said that 157 naval mines that have been randomly deployed by the Iran-backed Houthis, the mines have been discovered and removed.

The Coalition added that the Houthi militia continues to threaten maritime navigation and global trade in the Bab Al-Mandab strait and the southern Red Sea.

Earlier this week the Arab Coalition successfully intercepted and destroyed two explosive-laden boats in the Red Sea, launched by Iran-backed-Houthi militia in Yemen, the Coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said on Wednesday.

The spokesman said the boats were launched from Hodeidah Governorate, which the Houthi militias use “as a base to launch ballistic missiles, drones, booby-trapped remote-operated boats, as well as the random deployment of sea mines in flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and a violation of the provisions of the Stockholm cease-fire agreement in Hodeidah.”
