Saudi air raid targets boat carrying 12 Pakistani sailors near Yemen
YEMEN - A Saudi air raid had targeted a boat carrying 12 Pakistani sailors off Mukha coast in the Yemeni province of Ta’izz, Yemen’s Saba news agency said. According to the report, the other six sailors are still unaccounted for.
The deadly raid on Sunday comes as the Riyadh regime continues its military campaign against neighbouring Yemen, which was launched in March 2015 to reinstall the former Yemeni government.
Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi has ordered a major assault on the country’s Red Sea coast against Houthi Ansarullah fighters and allied army forces, who have been defending the nation against a deadly Saudi offensive.
