The Yemeni Navy has warned Saudi Arabia and its regional allies against deploying military vessels to Yemen’s territorial waters in the strategic Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, saying it would hit any such intruding vessels.

The Navy, in a statement released on Monday, announced that Yemeni forces will respond to any act of transgression into the waters of the Arab country or entry that has not obtained prior authorization from pertinent officials.

The statement added that the Saudi-led military coalition has been committing the most heinous crimes against the Yemeni people over the past one and a half years, ranging from the slaughter of children, women and elderly citizens to the bombing of markets, houses and critical infrastructure besides the killing of fishermen and ordinary people on the coasts and islands of Yemen.

The Navy reminded that Yemeni forces, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, launched missiles at an Emirati HSV-2 Swift catamaran off the shores of the Red Sea port city of Mokha on Friday, sinking it.
