Yemeni forces have targeted and destroyed an Emirati military vessel in a rocket attack near the Red Sea port city of Mokha, al-Masirah TV says.

Fighters of the Ansarullah movement and their allies targeted the warship off the coast of Ta’izz province early Saturday, the report said.

A military source said the Yemeni forces fired several rockets at the vessel and destroyed it .

The warship owned by the naval force of the United Arab Emirates was reportedly a high-speed logistical ship capable of locating mines, controlling military operations and transporting troops and equipment. The war vessel formerly belonged to the US navy, al-Masirah said.

Ansarullah fighters working in cooperation with the Yemeni army have so far destroyed several hostile warships and boats.
