Saudi-led coalition strikes at Houthi facilities in Salif port

US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — The Arab coalition has attacked the Shiite Ansar Alla (Houthis) in the port city of Salif, according to the Saudi newspaper Saudi Gazette.

According to the publication, the facilities where they gathered and from which the mined boats were launched were destroyed.

The military-political conflict in Yemen between the government and Houthi rebels from the Shiite Ansar Alla movement has been ongoing since 2014.

Since March 2015, the military coalition of the Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia has been on the side of the government.

In December 2018, the parties to the conflict in Yemen met for the first time in several years at a negotiation table organized under the auspices of the UN in Stockholm.

They managed to reach a number of important agreements, in particular, on the exchange of prisoners, a ceasefire in the port city of the Red Sea, Hodeida, and its transfer by the Houthis to UN control.
