The Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen announced the destruction of two booby-trapped boats belonging to the Houthi militia, before carrying out an imminent attack from Hodeidah.
The coalition considered that the militia uses the Stockholm Agreement as an umbrella to launch hostile attacks from Hodeidah Governorate, threatening maritime shipping routes and global trade.
And before that, the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen announced that it had intercepted and destroyed two marches that had been launched towards the southern region of Saudi Arabia.
Politically, the US envoy to Yemen, Tim Lenderking, began a third Gulf tour less than two months after his appointment.
According to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper sources, the Saudi initiative is at the forefront of discussions of that round that began in Muscat and will witness multiple meetings with the Yemeni government in Riyadh.
Concurrently, the Omani Foreign Minister Badr bin Hamad Al Busaidi and the UN Secretary General’s envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths discussed prospects for peace in Yemen.
The meeting, which took place in the Omani capital, Muscat, discussed developments in the situation in Yemen, and the efforts made to stop the war and revive the political process, through negotiations between all parties, to achieve security and stability in Yemen and the region.
“I had a constructive discussion in Muscat today with the Omani foreign minister about prospects for peace in Yemen,” Griffiths said. He added, “I thanked the Omani Minister of Foreign Affairs for supporting the United Nations efforts to bring peace to Yemen through an inclusive political process.”
Griffiths had resumed his contacts and meetings with the leaders of the Houthi militia, after a hiatus of several months.
The office of the UN envoy said, in a statement issued on Friday evening, that the special envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General is currently visiting the Sultanate of Oman.
