The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly criticized the Houthi group’s “continued attempts” to “threaten maritime commerce and international trade in the southern Red Sea,” according to the body.
In a statement released today, Sunday, Organization of Cooperation Secretary-General Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen condemned “what the Houthi organization did by planting a sea mine in the southern Red Sea, which the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen was able to locate and remove.”
“The Houthi militia’s planting of naval mines in the southern Red Sea is a serious concern that threatens maritime commerce and global trade,” Al-Othaimeen stated in a statement.
The Arab alliance announced earlier today that it had removed and destroyed 207 naval mines set “randomly” in the southern Red Sea by the Houthi group.
The Arab alliance stated that “the Iranian-Houthi naval mines pose a serious threat to maritime navigation and global trade.”
