On Friday, the Yemeni Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the Houthi “Ansar Allah” group launching a booby-trapped boat in the Red Sea and a remote-controlled drone, targeting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
A statement issued by the ministry affirmed, “The Yemeni government and people stand with the brothers in Saudi Arabia against everything that affects its security and stability, and supports all measures taken by the Kingdom in protecting its lands and combating terrorism in all its forms and preserving the security and stability of its lands and the region.”
The ministry called on “members of the entire international community to follow the example of the American position by classifying these Houthi militias as a foreign terrorist organization to force them to change their behavior and abandon their weapons to achieve security and peace and end the human suffering of the Yemeni people.”
The Arab coalition, led by Saudi Arabia, announced earlier in the day that it was frustrated with what it described as “two terrorist operations” that the Yemeni “Ansar Allah” group tried to implement this Friday morning.
