Saudi warship in western Yemen

Yemeni army forces, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have targeted a Saudi military vessel in a missile attack off the coast of the country’s western province of Al-Hudaydah.

The Yemeni military said  on Monday that Yemeni forces fired a guided missile at al-Madinah warship in waters near the port city of Hudaydah, located 150 kilometers southwest of the capital Sana’a.

The source added that the vessel had 176 soldiers and officers in addition to a combat helicopter onboard at the time.

The warship had reportedly mounted missile attacks against Yemen’s western coasts, cities and fishermen

Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen has confirmed the incident but claimed, apparently in an attempted downplaying of the successful attack, that it suffered a casualty toll of merely five. Yet, footage of the raid provided by Yemeni forces points to the enormity of the explosion and subsequent fire on the deck of the Saudi vessel.

On January 21, the Yemeni Coast Guard warned enemies’ battleships against using the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden, to bomb civilian targets, emphasizing that such a practice poses grave threats to international maritime navigation in the area.
