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.
