A US Navy ship seized hundreds of small arms, including Kalashnikovs and AK-47s, from onboard a sailboat in the Gulf of Aden, a Pentagon official said.
The official added that the boat was seized in an area where weapons were previously smuggled by the Houthi militias. He stated that the seized weapons were now being held on board the destroyer “USS Jason Dunam”.
This comes as the Houthi militias targeted a relief truck belonging to the Red Cross near the Directorate of Tahita south of the province of Hodeidah.
Meanwhile, the head of the Yemeni Higher Relief Committee, Abdul-Raqeeb Fath, strongly condemned the Houthi militias blocking international relief organizations from receiving and distributing aid in Durahmi and Al-Haitha in Hodeidah.
