The Arab coalition destroyed two Houthi boats threatening an oil tanker in the Red Sea on Wednesday, UAE state-news agency WAM reported.
UAE coalition forces destroyed the two boats that were targeting a commercial oil tanker, while two other Houthi boats escaped the report added.
No specific details were given on the tanker, or if it had been damaged.
Last month, a Saudi oil tanker was hit off Yemen’s main port city of Hodeidah, suffering limited damage, in what coalition forces said was an attack by the Houthis, without identifying the type of weapon used in the assault.
The Houthis said they had targeted a coalition warship.
