Fighters of the Revolutionary Committee of Yemen released ballistic missiles of class “surface-to-surface” at a military ship Navy of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi ship was sunk not far from the Bab-El-Mandeb Strait, which is a short way into the Mediterranean sea.
“The rockets fired by fighters of the Revolutionary Committee and by the local militia destroyed the ship of the naval forces of Saudi Arabia in the coastal waters of the province of Hodeidah”, – said the official representatives of the Revolutionary Committee of Yemeni forces and local militias.
A source in military circles confirmed that it is already the 11th sunken ship over the past six months. Recall that the previous successful attack took place on the 4th February. On that day the militias of the “Houthi” movement sank 4 boats belonging to Saudi Arabia.
