Sana’a: Saudi Arabia’s navy vessels retreated from Yemen’s coastal waters after the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait. This is the third Saudi warship sinking in Yemen’s offshore waters in the last one month.
The Saudi warship was targeted by Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters of al-Mukha region in the Province of Ta’iz.
The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets on residential areas in Ta’iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
This is the third time that a Saudi warship is completely destroyed during the Saudi-led war on Yemen. Other Saudi battleships retreated fast following the attack. The coast of Al-Mukha is located in Bab al-Mandab strait and the Saudi-led forces have been trying hard for several months now to win control over coastal regions near the waterway.
On October 11, the Yemeni forces fired rockets at a Saudi-led coalition warship and destroyed it near al-Mukha coast.
Informed sources also said that the warship named “al-Mahrousa” belonged to the Egyptian army.
