Houthis attack Saudi tanker in Red Sea

Yemen's Iran-backed Houthis (Ansarallah) have attacked a Saudi oil tanker in the Red Sea, causing "minor damage" to the vessel, the Arab coalition said on Wednesday (July 25th).

The kingdom's Al-Ekhbariya television cited the coalition saying the oil tanker was "the target of a Houthi-Iranian terrorist attack", AFP reported.

"The oil tanker sustained minor damage and the (Houthi) militias almost caused an environmental catastrophe," the coalition said.

The statement did not provide details on the name or size of the tanker.

Earlier, the pro-Houthi Al-Masirah television said that the militia fighters had targeted a Saudi warship named al-Dammam, without providing further details.
