Al-Maliki added that 3 marine mines were also discovered and destroyed during the past (24) hours in the Bab al-Mandab strait and the southern Red Sea, bringing the number of marine mines that have been discovered and destroyed to date (150) marine mines that the Iranian-backed militia has planted and deployed.
And Colonel al-Maliki stated that the Houthi militias are taking from Hodeidah Governorate a place to launch ballistic missiles and drones, booby-trapped boats, and remote-controlled boats, as well as random sea mines.
He stressed that this is a clear and clear violation of international humanitarian law and a violation of the provisions of the (Stockholm) Agreement and the ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah.
Al-Maliki stressed that the joint coalition forces leadership continues to implement strict measures against these terrorist militias and to neutralize and destroy such capabilities that threaten regional and international security.
