Ship Reportedly Attacked in Saudi Port


Saudi military bases and infrastructure have been repeatedly targeted by explosive-laden drones and boats, launched by Yemeni’s Houthi rebel group. The attacks have intensified of late, despite Riyadh’s efforts to bring the conflict to a halt via a UN-backed armistice.

The Saudi Defence Ministry has announced the kingdom’s military destroyed an explosive-laden boat off the port city of Yanbu, Al Arabiya reported on Tuesday.

The ministry has since launched a probe to identify the culprit behind the attempted attack.

The report comes as the security firm Dryad Global said a ship had been attacked in the Saudi port of Yanbu.

Another security firm Neptune P2P Group previously reported a possible “explosion” at the King Fahd Port in Yanbu, adding that black smoke had been spotted near the southern entrance to the port.
