The Saudi warship was targeted with Yemeni missiles in the Al-Mukha coastal waters in the province of Ta’iz today.
The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets at residential areas in Ta’iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
This is the eighth time that a Saudi warship is sent deep into the waters of Bab al-Mandab Strait by the Yemeni forces.
Other Saudi battleships that were approaching Yemen’s coasts 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 the coastal regions near the waterway.
On December 5, the Yemeni forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait.
